Bailout your bicycle

If there's a silver lining to the $700 billion bailout it's legislation about giving bicyclists a tax break.

As a year round commuter facing sub-zero temps and snow this week, I was excited to see this news. Really, $20 / month doesn't cover a whole lot in bicycle expenses, but hey, I still think it's great news.

With studded snow tires at $80 a copy it will buy one every four months, so you will have to get by with 1/4 of a tire the first month. Fortunately they replaced the steel studs with longer lasting alloy studs. So in two winters you should be ready to ride, mate.
