Getting rid of my car and exclusively using my bike has changed my whole life, but seriously, if I knew how many benefits came from not owning a car I would have done it years ago.
I live in a major population center that has a fantastic system of public transit.
I am fortunate to be in a location where I can get by just fantastic without a car. If I can’t walk or ride my bike I can take a town bus, or even an Uber. I have lost 30 pounds from all the extra exercise I get, I feel fit and healthy, and I even landed an amazing part-time job. I use my bike to make deliveries for the local cannabis dispensary. The spend my money isn’t great, but the tips are amazing! The cannabis shop prefers using this method of delivery for two really important reasons. #1 is that traffic is always bad around the downtown area, so cannabis deliveries are much quicker when they are done with bike messengers. #2 is that technically speaking cannabis delivery is not legal in the city. On my bike I am fast, quiet, and can make cannabis deliveries 10 times faster than someone driving a car. If the cops do suspect anything I can truly escape them, because they don’t ride bikes so they have to stand in traffic. It’s a genius system, and by working 3 or 4 hours a evening making marijuana deliveries I make incredibly fantastic currency, and potheads are really great tippers, especially when their cannabis order arrives so hastily.
