Use of the York Boulevard Parkade cycling cage -- paid for by Metrolinx, AFAIK -- costs, but as cages multiply the cost would presumably remain constant, not compound.

Everyone will have to make their own cost rationalizations, but $40 or so per year for peace of mind over a riding season does not strike me as a huge longer-term commitment.

Assuming you bike downtown once a week the six months of optimal weather, if you rode once a week over the six months of optimal weather, you'd be looking at less than $1.70 per lock-up. That's about the hourly rate for parking, but drivers are obliged to pay that minimum for most off-street spots, even if they only require a fraction of it.
