    Not when the weather is shit. You’re not gonna get humanity to get up for a bike ride and have to take a shower on arrival just to go get groceries, for example.

    There are a lot of different things that impact this, not just weather. The point isn’t about not picking one thing but to recognize it’s not feasible for everyone, full stop.

      People do this all the time in communities that emphasize biking. Easily. And actually, it isn’t that difficult to do.

      Further, driving isn’t feasible for everyone, but driving is emphasized in such a way that alternatives cannot thrive.

      If there was really solid bike infrastructure, I think covered electric tricycles capable of towing small capsule trailers could fill that gap fairly well. Something like this or this.
