    Normal office shoes (with Neos Villager overshoes in the wet or when below freezing). Reason -- convenience. I bike for convenience.

    Her 2011 arrest was at a BAC of .27. That "one drink too many" was rather extraordinary. The FAA won't let you get a medical certificate with a DWI under circumstances that point to alcoholism unless...

    No lockout. People like her are medically unfit to drive. They should be banned from roads for life, with a medical appeal process allowing reinstatement if proved cured.

    I think you may be way overdressed. I'm normally cold for the first twenty minutes. If you start to sweat, unzip and vent immediately -- don't wait until you are wet.

    I think it is relevant. The reason I started riding a bike in DC is that congestion made driving too slow and inconvenient except on weekends. Many people are not particularly concerned about health,...
