Carrying a NEX 5n (storage and usage) while cycling

I am looking for a convenient way to carry my 5n with me while cycling.  I've put the camera in my jersey pocket for shorter rides, but I'm a little concerned about moisture (sweat) over the long run. The 16mm is a better size, but I prefer the 18-55mm.  I've also used a small top-tube bag (like a bento box) - this works pretty well, but only with the 16mm Lens. I've even tried riding with just the neck strap, but it has a tendency to swing around, although I guess I could try a third strap - like a messenger bag.

here are the other options I know about:

- handlebar bag (usually large and maybe a little dorky looking)

- seat bag (not very convenient to access while cycling)

- frame bag (this is a little hit or miss)

heres a few of the features that are important to me:

- easy access (I like to take shots while I ride - I am aware of the danger

- small (I don't need to carry anything but the camera with the attached lens)

- padded (to protect from the jarring movement)

- weather resistant (would be ideal)

anybody else have ideas or experience cycling with a NEX? Recommendations?
