Well yes and no. I live in what BICYCLING mag calls one of the best places in the world to ride, Sonoma County. I avoid full-time permanent jobs unless they look really good. A couple of temp agencies find me work within 20-25 miles of home and I bike to work. I have a beater truck for bad weather and emergencies. Yes, my bike costs about 5 times the cost of the truck. A new HID light system would cost more than the truck! I drive to a new assignment the first day and ask if cycling is a problem. Rarely has been in this county. One place I had to walk in the door with a tie on. I changed at a friendly gas station then walked around the corner to work. I didn't accept assignments at Zerox again.
