Car Free Day:

Yesterday was car free day. Car free day(CFD) is a national event that aims to raise awareness for our environment, and the benefits of physical activities.

It happens twice a month, always on Sundays. It usually starts at 7am and ends at 10am, although on some special occasions it lasts for a few more hours.

During those hours, vehicles aren't allowed to roam the streets. Instead, people walk, socialize, and play sports. Children can also ride their bikes, skate, rollerblade with worry free parents.

Not to mention anyone participating can get a medical check up from volunteering doctors, for free.

The activities are organized by community leaders who also partake. Thus, the other upside of CFD, is that community leaders actually get to know their consituents.

For a more detailed explanation of CFD, you can check out this post I made last year.


This weekend I didn't play that much, until yesterday. I pretty much made up for it. I climbed from the 1600s to the 2000s, back to the 1900s in one go, and all that without over exerting my erc.

Was nice. Until I had to face two rules per battle. Actually I got used to it pretty fast but then again, I just got to the Gold III league so, we'll see.

Hey! Neat post with a couple topics at once. I see so many folks break it up into multiple posts and I kinda like reading a couple different subjects in 1 post.

Car Free day as a national movement is such a great idea. I wish they would do that here in Canada.

Happy #PYPT day!

Cheers, I think I'll stick to this format for most of my posts.

And maybe you should push for the car free day movement there.... you never know

I have seen you around and love what you do.

And I might take you on on that offer one of these days.

I love how you integrated all of this, win big and is wonderful to see communities do car free days, I wish the states would do that sometimes to get the country fit again! lol ;)


Indeed, people have actually become so used to it, they be impatient for the next one. Specially the youngins, which is great!

And I wish you and the states luck in that endeavor, though I don't see it happening anytime soon. :p
