So very true. I love to bike to work, but not when it's 90 and humid. Or when it's 40 and raining. Kind of a fair-weather-only wussy bike commuter really.

can't buy it now said...

Is the cost of sweat less than the cost of gas?

Unless, of course, you have a shower in the office.

A second line should run low-left to high-right representing gas prices. The intersection could be "the breaking point".

depends what your job is, I work outside anyways so biking is a plus

My feelings exactly. I have a commuter bike, but a 30-mile work commute without a shower facility.
I don't have the kind of job where I could show up stinking.
Pity.

like that episode of the Office with Jim biking to work! or in Arrested Development where Michael bikes to work all the time! sorry, am I coloring your card with my tv show references? I'll stop now.

Considering I just started biking to work [living in Colorado for the past six months], and recently moved from the midwest, I whole-heartedly agree!

ah, the joys of working in a bike shop - arriving to work sweaty, stinky, greasy, soaked, muddy or covered in a layer of snow merely elevates your status.

As someone who once lived in the most humid part of Japan (a very humid country in summer), I wholeheartedly agree. The graph also works, incidentally, if you replace 'humidity' with 'strength of typhoon'.

Being stinky and sweaty before work because of my bike rides are bonuses, just not for my co-workers. The superiority of how little gets spent on transport makes it all better.
