With a fully equipped city bike–flat pedals, chain guard, fenders, lights, baskets and rack-mounted bags–riding to work is as simple as throwing a leg over and pedaling off in your work clothes. As you warm up, you can peel off a layer, stow it, and keep on rolling on. Happy Bike to Work Day, San Francisco Bay Area!
