I recently moved to the Seattle area, and today was my first opportunity to bike to work. For now, I'm using my road bike...feels a little weird to ride a Trek Madone with flat pedals (or to think that there's a power meter but no Garmin). Anyhow, most of the buildings at the campus where I work have underground parking with bike racks. The building next to mine has locker rooms w/ showers, and just last week opened up a new bike rack facility: pegs to hang bikes vertically, on frames that work well to lock the bikes. There's a simplistic bike repair stand with tools cabled to it and a pump, but coolest of all is that it takes a badge to gain access to it (all of the other racks are directly accessible from the outside, although there are surveillance cameras).
