Bike commuters are familiar with the "How can/do you it it?" question. Really though, riding your bike to work is pretty simple. For an example of dedicated cycling you need to look elsewhere. Today I'm looking at the example of Marion Rice, carfree Mom.
Marion has a five and two year old she takes to school on her Xtracycle enhanced bike. Two kids and/or four bags of groceries are typical loads on her 10 to 16 miles of daily riding for daily life. Marion is going to be writing a regular column on "Carfree Families" on BikePortland.org.
