1) bike riding is a physical challenge in bad weather. i hope my fould weather gear will be bike friendly.
2) I often have to run errands all over the place during my work day and getting those done by bus is very hard.
3) carrying things to and from work. I just got panniers for my bike and I hope these will help me ride my bike most days
4) arriving at work all sweaty is not nice. Luckily my ride is either downhill or flat on the way to work. There are no shower facilities! A box of 7th Generation facial wipes might help make me presentable on a hot day.
