Simply Living Life

By Dan Ekenberg
After completing my bicycle ride across America against all odds in 2017, I realized that we are capable of accomplishing incredible things if we will only START. Cycling continues to be a big part of my life and I will be doing episodes on my cycling life as well as other cyclists. Of course life isn't only about bicycles! Join me as I share amazing stories of determination and accomplishments with people living their lives on their terms and "Simply Living Life".

Simply Living Life

Living life without a car
Could you live without a car? For many, cars are a necessary tool for getting to work, bringing kids to sports and school events, shopping and more. I recently made the decision to sell my truck and go car free! My situation is perhaps a bit different from others in that, I'm retired and don't go to the office every day, I don't have any kids living at home, I'm close to amenities (stores, bank, Post Office etc.) and live is a pretty bike friendly community, Boise, Idaho. In this episode, I share what led me to my decision, how I'll manage daily transportation and more. You'll find this and all episodes on my website
