I'd def. ride a half-mile commute. It takes 5 minutes to walk it, 2 to ride... which means 3 minutes for practicing backwards circles every day! As to riding being impractical for longer distances... depends. I'm happy to ride 6 to 8 miles even if the're a bus. It's much more fun and takes about the same time. Downtown, riding is faster even if the bus goes door-to-door. My buddy even beat the subway once, from one subway stop to another one 5 miles away.
