Glad to hear you are doing well. The motorcycle threads have helped me in my bicycle fairing efforts. Dimensionally a bicycle fairing is about 7/8 the size of a motorcycle fairing. Any commute less than 10 miles is definitely ideal for bicycling. Many of the same principles apply. Reduce aero drag, the right tires, good lubrication, route selection, and regular maintenance all contribute to efficient riding. For urban riding either an e-bike and trailer or an internal gear hub bike is great. A faired TT style bike will get you up to 25 mph for a faster ride. Gives an added option to park and ride.
