I'm a Post-Doctoral Fellow in atmospheric remote sensing at the University of Toronto in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I first came to Stack Exchange for practical reasons: Tex.SE has been of major help when I wrote my licentiate (midterm) thesis. Since then, I have discovered the joy of many websites. As my network profile will show, I'm interested in travel, outdoor, scientific skepticism, and as I work in academia, also in academia and LaTeX.

comment Is it possible to ride 18km everyday for a beginner?
I think it all strongly depends on the pace. Riding at an easy pace is hardly exercise. In my view, the bicycle is just an extension to the body, and riding easy vs. racing is like walking calmly vs. running.

comment How to relate wind chill, temperature, and cycling
On the assumption that your degrees are all in Fahrenheit, I added units and conversion to celsius. If you actually meant 15°C, 1°C, 10°C, and 20°C respectively, please edit your own question accordingly.

I haven't had the problem either, not above -30°C at least. Are you cycling hard or at a leasurely pace?

comment Why do we rarely see recumbents and almost never see velomobiles?
@Kaz Efficient in terms of speed achieved per unit energy spent.
