My garage is a living room

Luis Patricio and his wife live in Curitiba since 2004. In 2007 they sold the only car they had and despite all difficulties of living in a car-oriented city, they decided they would use the bike for most of their trips. Today, they have three children, live in a house with a garage converted into an open air living room and still don’t have a car. This book is about their choice, how they reached it and how it affected their family. Besides some personal experiences, the book also includes some tips and useful information for anyone interested in knowing a little more about how to get started.
