I'm not sure how I feel about this.

On one hand, I'd love to throw away my car and never look back. But, it's something that I need since I have such a long commute to work.

I also would need one for things like grocery shopping or visiting relatives who don't live in town.

Even getting from my place to relatives is about 20 minutes by car; to do that on a bike would probably be about an hour. On top of that I'd be sweaty and need to shower before being presentable... leading to bringing an alternate set of clothes.

In my youth we used to bike anywhere and everywhere around town, mostly due to the rail trail and calmer streets in the 'burbs. Now, I'd do it more in a setting like the rail trail or the bayfront, but it's impractical to juggle $50-100 of groceries on the handlebars of a bike.
