    I'm lucky and have an understanding other who permits my bikes to always remain indoors and I have a nice large research lab that has space for a bike at work. Best parking spot on campus!

    Agreed! I am confident that the cold weather will sap some power, but with a round-trip being doable I think a one way trip and charging at each end will make it usable throughout the winter.

    E-Bike options! Juiced vs Stromer

    Be a PAL! Right :) I'm pretty good at being a considerate rider (I hope!). I wouldn't expect an ebike to magically make me an inconsiderate idiot!

    Heat maps FTW! Pondering the Garmin 520 Plus which supposedly has these heat maps built in to recommend good routes based on garmin's treasure trove of riding data.

    Thanks a bunch! These all look like viable options. Especially with an ebike propelling me along at a decent average speed if I can avoid lots of stops!

    All good ideas! I do have the option to carpool with my other half to her office at UMD and bike from there. That's a more manageable 30 mile roundtrip, which works well. But if I can ebike in...

    Indeed. I'd limit the ebike-superness to non-trail usage to hopefully avoid any kerfluffles. Any other critiques I would brush off with the justification of riding half a century a day in...

    I was thinking more of a Nancy Kerrigan/Tonya Harding approach? I think Williams would somehow manage to do 200 miles without a chain or pedals. Would be difficult if we kneecap him!
