There are many times when people cant find parking at work and have to park illegally is non parking spots. This is sorrta fun.

The picture entilted "Parking" is what the parking lot looked like today. JAMMED.

The picture entitled "My Commuter" is my bike... parked excatly 30 steps away from my computer in my kitchen. Never have issues finding a parking spot.... even in rush hour!

Getting the best parking spot is just one of the benefits of bike commuting

Yup, they are shimanos mtb. Love them actually and I love the fact I can actually walk in the shoes versus my road shoes where I wobble.

The fender is nice looking. I have never used one so this is my first time. We wil lsee how to does when it snows (whenever that will be).

The Camden route is not that bad per say. I am lucky that all I have to ride in is Admiral Wilson BLVD. A lot of glass for sure. There are also two MUPs too that are pretty good. I love to commute.

Snow is usually in January, February, and March. We've been lucky so far this winter.

Yes lucky for sure. I have been looking at studded tires but it would be great if I didnt have to get them this year. I will try to ride to work once in the snow and see how it goes. I am VERY slow getting to work now so I am not sure how long it might take me in the snow.

I see no one is parking their bikes in the provided bike rack. No surprise there. When are facility owners and managers going to realize we need more security than that?

I agree Craig. I would like it if they had bike lockers or even be ok with parking at the desk if room allowed. I work in this huge kitchen and its only me... no one else so I would think it would be ok to park my bike in the kitchen but the big boss did not agree with me. I find it funny because I am:

1- adding to the companies "green" belief
2- not driving
3- "saving" the earth
4- Exercising

Most companies at best pay lip service to the items on your list. I'm not surprised.
