Dragonfly, that's awesome. It's impossible for me, right this minute, but I'd love to get to a place where I can live car free.  I just noticed where you live...that's borderline remarkable, biking year round in that area. My mothers side of the family is from Ithaca, I know the area a bit.
Actually, I may find out if it's possible...the transmission in my car is getting closer and closer to aborting itself...when that happens, I'm on the bike.
I would have loved to have been able to commute today. Legs are feeling a little bit better, but I know they're not totally healed, so I'm not risking it.
