Yet another incredulous article about someone who, *GASP*, rides their bike to work in the winter. This one comes via the Iowa City Gazzette Online.
Don't get me wrong, the article is nice enough and even has a video that does a good job of profiling a winter commuter ... I just get tired of all these articles being about people who haven't owned a car since -- forever.
The message I get from these articles is that you have to sell your car if you're serious about commuting by bike. I still drive; more than I like to admit. I would love to see a feature on someone who says they commute by bike because it is fun and that you don't need a lot of special equipment to ride a bike.
You see what happens when I don't get to make my mocha latte in the morning!!!
