Car-Free in Ann Arbor

 

continued

Carson, thirty-four, has since lived the car-free life in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and now Ann Arbor, where she moved last summer to found a tech start-up. She commutes daily from her home on Ann Arbor's west side to her office on State St. downtown. While she has high praise for the local cycling community centered around Sic Transit Cycles, the vintage-bicycle shop on Broadway, she thinks Ann Arbor needs "much more comprehensive bike infrastructure," including more signage and more bike lanes. But she says the city is making progress, and in the meantime it's bike-friendly enough that she will stick around. "I would never live in a place that I couldn't live car-free," she says. "I deliberately structure my life around being able to use my bike as my primary form of transport."
