Just an FYI fuckwits, but the US average commute time is 50 minutes round trip (in a car). Mine's a little over an hour, about 37 miles each way, going 70MPH (we don't have very heavy traffic). It would take you, on a snowy day, about 3-4 hours each way on a bike, and that's if you could find an already plowed road that allows bicycles.
So perhaps Cyclo wouldn't like it here - which is a good thing.
You could always try living closer to where you work, or do what Maporsche does and only ride in every other day; we have several people here at Berkeley who do exactly that.
'average' commute time is pretty much meaningless in this conversation. For some, b/c of their physical injury, necessity to drive as part of their job, or their home's location, can't commute by bike or bus or anything but a car. Great. I don't have an issue with that and neither do most bike enthusiasts. But there are many
people who live in areas who can ride a bike to work, but drive instead...
The weather, even when it's cold, isn't a factor unless you're determined to make it one, 95% of the time.
More than anything else, I must say; it seems that you believe that challenging people to knock off the chip on your shoulder is entertaining and a productive use of your time. And then when they do, you get surly and pissy. Not very adult, cj.
