Not all mobile operations can be run from your vehicle.  How about mounting a simple 5/8 wavelength Larson VHF magnetic mount antenna on your bicycle and using a HT to contact fellow radio amateurs on 2 meters while you cruise around the neighborhood?  "Taverned" has just done that with a simple 2 meter mobile antenna arrangement on his mountain bike. When you've finished your run, you can park the bike at a public park and operate portable from a bench or picnic table.  A very simple, effective operation--plus you get exercise and some fresh air at the same time.
