Cap Metro is a decent option to get to your office, especially if you work downtown (and a mere 3 blocks from the train station in my case). But what about getting from your house to the train or bus station? I just moved to Cedar Park - the train does a great job of closing (most of) the gap. The 5-ish miles from my house to the station though are frought with traffic and no bandwidth increase really would help for the roadways.
The solution is hopefully low-tech and as good for me as it is the environment.

So what are your tips for bike commuting from the burbs to a Cap Metro train station? What are the most helpful bike shops? Any accessories you highly recommend?
Has anyone gone the DIY ebike route and can provide tips on say, installing a rear hub motor?
How do you manage to bike to work without dying of heat exhaustion?
