Just last week I sold my car. One of the best car I have had in many years. A Hyundai Elantra. It was gas efficient, it had great acceleration and it has a beautiful design.
Our relationship didn’t make sense anymore. I don’t have any real need for my car. In the past, I justified being a car owner because I could use it in my Airbnb business, but I don’t have it anymore, so goodbye beautiful car.
Instead, I am reaffirming my relationship with my old bike. My bike has been with me for years, always loyal. I use it all during the year, I even use it in the winter at -20 °C (-4.0 °F).
How has my life changed since I did this change?
I am saving tons of money. Here are my savings per year.
|Gas||600 (assuming $20/month)|
|Maintenace||200 (oil and tire change)|
|Parking||60 ($5 X 12 months)|
|TOTAL||3000 (and over!)|

At any time, I love cycling. For me, it makes sense to "drive" towards my leisure places to practice walking or running. I use motorized vehicles (car or bus), only when the distances are longer than normal.
