Mostly I ride a commuter bike short distances as an environmentally friendly, cheap and healthy mode of transport.

Occasionally I ride off road on a hard-tail mountain bike.

comment Nice Work Shoes That Won't Get Messed up in Toe-Clips
You can get "summer" or "light" overshoes as well as "winter" ones. I assume a commute is a relatively short distance at a slow / moderate pace so overheating shouldn't be too much of an issue.

"How do I handle people walking in bike lanes?" might be a better question.
