[CAMWEST-discuss] gear for cycling to work

After writing the list of 'necessities' that I found in my kit bag
I'm starting to worry that it may turn off potential new commuters. 

Something needs to be added about how you don't need all the stuff at once,
and about starting out riding 2-3 days a week on the 'nice' weather days,
and about how all these things make great birthday, Xmas, mothers/fathers day presents
and the 'kit' can therefore be built up over a number of years.

I like the line in Dr Rissel's document that a 15 minute each way
cycle to and from work each day reduces risk of heart attack and associated other nasties
such as diabeties by FORTY %!

I'll keep working on it,
comments and suggestions apreciated.

Great idea!  Would someone who has write access to Push On like to do that?

It would be nice to implement a system for discussion on our CAMWEST
site too.  It's on my TODO list, though it's not as high up that list
as I would like.

Excellent.  I was not aware of these rides before.
