We are fortunate to live in an area that has great weather most of the year. We are also fortunate to live in a city that is extremely bike friendly (understatement of the year!). I am not exaggerating when I say there are more bikes than cars or people in our town. We have over 100 miles of paved bike trails (with turn-a-bouts and signals) in 8 square miles. Needless to say, when my bike was stolen a few months ago (which is the highest incident of crime in our little town) I was not a happy camper. But, after I saved up some Christmas and birthday money, I was able to finally buy a new bike! I LOVE it!
