I have a 6 mi roundtrip through low traffic areas. My only real excuse for not riding everyday is rain and extreme cold (I will ride above freezing) during the dead of winter.
I know that if I was hardcore these to issues would be non-issues. But I am not hardcore. I ride in my work clothes and treat my bike as a car.... get on and go...
On bad weather days, if I could take an enclosed bike to keep me relatively dry or keep the really cold wind off me, I would never really need a car.
Anyone know how to achieve this goal without spending $5,000 to import something?
