Outside the Box with Bicycles

Several years ago I started a non-profit car sharing organization in Bellingham. Although we couldn’t make it stick and it closed about two years ago, our motivations were similar to those of Bellinghamster Tim Flores. This week he moved the entire contents of his modest home across town, with only the help of a few friends and their bicycles.

I admire people who challenge themselves and those that act in line with their conscience rather than take the autopilot route.

Have you ever taken a stand on an issue in a way that’s worthy of a newspaper article? I’d love to hear your stories here.

Thanks to Cathy Belben for posting the article on Facebook and to Olivet for this sketch.

  1. I recently outfitted my bicycle with a box on the back that I can fill with groceries. I must admit I don’t use it as often for that particular errand as I should. To think it might be possible to move all my stuff on a bike? That’s inspiring.
