The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders cross the stars.

The All-Weather Bike


I like biking. Lately, we've had a lot of rain. I could go with the typical rain gear, but frankly, it's a bit awkward.

So I decided to look around for some alternatives.

There's this strange-looking option for recumbent bikers.

Moving up - just a little bit - is this bike taxi from Cuba.

There are those who try to put a form of plastic cover over the average bike.

And then we get into the more professional, manufactured options...

That last one will run you over $30,000. Granted, it's a two-seater with an electric motor that will run up to 50 mph, but no bike is worth that much money. I can buy a hybrid car for that much.

Seems to me that some enterprising individual can arrive at a better solution. If I had the money, I'd get started prototyping.
