I'm a commuter mostly, about 20km a day, for the last 15 years, in all weather. Sydney weather is not too harsh though.

I've done a little cycle touring. Most recently circumnavigating Samoa in early 2011.

I did a few weeks as a bicycle courier back in the 90s whilst on holidays from my permanent job.
