  1. Parking passes at my school are $480 a year! (And this is not downtown NYC/LA/Chicago, where parking everywhere is at a premium.) Fortunately I live just 1.5 miles from campus, so I'm planning to bike. A few miles is nothing on a bicycle, but I've always been a fair-weather rider: Currently, I'll ride my bike to work (5 miles away) IF it's not too cold and IF it's not raining and IF I don't have to wear anything special and IF I don't have to go anywhere after work and IF I'm not in a rush. (So, like, once a week, during the summer.) Any tips on bike commuting in less-than-ideal conditions? I was thinking about keeping a gym bag at my desk, so I can change on days where the ride makes me wet. I could wear gym clothes to school every day then change, but it seems like a short enough trip that I could get a way with regular clothes most of the time. For rainy days, I was thinking about getting one of those rain suits that comes with "rain jacket" pants... is that overkill? And biking through snow just seems like an accident waiting to happen. (I could walk to school, too, I suppose...) And do you think a backpack will do, or is it worth investing in a rack for my back wheel and a bag that attaches to them. (Saddle bag? See, I'm not even a legit enough cyclist to know what the accessories are called!) Thanks for the tips!
