Provo family of 7 enjoy being car-less @heraldextra

In New York City, going car-less is the norm, but in Utah County, it’s a lot less common. One Provo family, though, has been proving it’s very possible — with a little bit of planning.
Karen and Joe Spencer have been carless for almost six years now. While some might think it’s environmental, or some sort of statement, for the Spencer family, it was purely financial. In late 2009, the family was living in Provo, where Joe Spencer had an internship while working as an adjunct faculty member. Money was very tight, and as Christmas approached, they came to a point where they had to decide to fix their one car or pay the rent.
“We also just found out I was pregnant with our fourth child, and the car didn’t have room for another car seat. So we sold it and paid the rent,” Karen Spencer said on a mild, sunny May afternoon.

Muc-Off - Danny MacAskill's New "Old-skool" style video

When Mama's Happy @advcyclingassoc

Columbus based Bourne selling 4Toz bicycle #letsride

The 4Toz Flyer steel frame and fork design was created in-house and built by BOURNE workshop x BREW racing frames.
You'll travel like royalty to the local pub with a leather B17 saddle by BROOKS controlling your journey through a smartly appointed cockpit with cork grips, levers by PAUL's components, headset by Chris King securely connected by Thomson stem and Easton bar. 
A 48-tooth SRAM courier crank transfers H-power to a Sturmey Archer 2-speed kickback hub that turns up the heat on the pavement through fat 20" MAXXIS Hookworm tires while front and rear AVID discs bring you back to earth when things get a little too real.
You won't want any excuses to end your fun once it starts so pack all you need on the front and rear racks because it's going to be a long day!
p.s. If your itinerary includes a trip to the store or pub look at the 2SIXrack by BOURNE.
