cycling for slackers

Bicycle fixation has a great article on how to ride without breaking a sweat. It completely debunks the myth that only macho athletes who are totally committed to biking would ever cycle to work. As the author explains, you don't have to dress up like an underwear pervert or invest your life-savings in a bike, in order to pedal around town. In fact, such bike-snob accouterments are more likely to get you sweating than just dressing comfortably.

This is not to say that there isn't a place for day-glow, skin tight, spandex outfits; only that such a place may not be at work, the post office or the supermarket.
