I find it odd that you see gloves as so essential to riding a bike, let alone a bike share one. Comments like this start to make me think that Australians just understand how "utility" cycling works.
I must admit, I ride 10kms each way on my commute.... and I never wear cycling mitts. On cold winter mornings I will wear full gloves, only to combat the cold.
Touring and longer distance recreational rides, yes I wear mitts.
