Bicycling as transportation

I have been giving a lot of thought about switching to bicycling as our primary mode of local transport. This weekend turned out to be a wonderful break from the much needed rain so we were able to utilize our bicycles as our exclusive means of transport. After logging 21 miles I have come to the conclusion that this mode of transport is totally doable. I believe that planning is absolutely key and maybe that is a larger statement about life. The biggest problem that I have found is parking. There is just not much bike parking anywhere and absolutely none if you have trailers. I am thinking that we may just start using a car spot, but worry that someone will get upset that bicycles are taking a car spot and damage our bikes. Here is a picture of our caravan. If you are interested, follow the link to more photos and a couple of videos of our weekend. Bicycle Weekend 1.0
