I don't plan on getting rid of my car at this point in time. But, I did start riding my bike to work a couple of weeks ago! And today, I rode my bike to the grocery store. I usually fill my car up with gas once every payday (get paid every two weeks), but this time I had half a tank left in her at the end of the pay period! I did splurge on a couple of new panniers to help with make it easier to bring change of clothes and my lap top to work. And I probably won't be biking in any heavy rains or super hot/humid days as my asthma is likely to flare up. That said, I would seriously consider giving winter biking a try, may not be a daily thing but even just once a week is better than nothing. And I don't mind the colder weather a bit. Granted, both my job and the grocery store are only a couple of miles from home, but all the more reason to hop on the bike, right?! I know, for most on this site, it's probably not much to get excited about; but, as a middle aged, overweight single mom/sole provider to two teenage girls, it's my badassity and I'm claimin' it!
