Don't go far without some kind of pants/shorts on, the local constabulary gets a little annoyed with you if you don't

As for bike shorts, under 5km I don't generally bother, under 10km, it's debatable, but usually, over 10km definitely.

Anything over a 5 mile round trip and I'm flaunting the lycra.

I do have a StephenH tribute bike to overhaul that may change that plan though. It has the potential to be the ultimate grocery getter. Heck, If StephenH can do the Hotter Than Hell 100 on one, I can do 10 miles, .
