    Bike To Work Day is coming up - what are your plans?

    I myself plan on not only stopping at one of the bike stations but doing the actual ride into the city this year, as this is the first year that it is practical for me to do so.

    what are everyone else's plans?

    As always, I take the day off, and join in the local noon time festivities.

    I bike into a small town from a rural area. Nobody here has even ever heard of bike to work day, and there are no other regular riders out of the 650 people in our facility - one or two others ride a dozen times a year or so. If I rode 20 miles past work into Ann Arbor, there might be one or two things in parking lots, but that would triple my mileage.

    I'll do the same thing I have every bike-to-work day for the last 5 years, and the same thing I do every day. Bike to work.
    Work: the 8 hours that separates bike rides.

    So when is bike to work day? I mean for everyone else?
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    Ours is in June I think.
    I plan on forgetting that it is bike to work day, waking up late that day, riding to work wondering why there is around 500 riders that I am passing, riding past the free food, changing to an all street route, and finally remembering what is going on but still not having any time to participate. Just like the last three years.

    I don't need to be congratulated for biking to work, so I'll skip the tables, breakfast stations, free t-shirt give-aways etc. But if it gets other people out and riding, then more power to 'em.

    I think our bike to work day/week is at the end of May or in June. Although I've yet to hear anything on it.
    Anyways, I work from home, so officially I don't commute to work, I just commute for everything else, however I don't think this area does anything special other than promote bike to work.
    I never hear much about freebies here.

    BTW day is may 15th in Baltimore. I wish the rallies were earlier so I could attend, I have to be in by 7am and the rally starts at 7am.

    I plan to commute as I do 2 days a week, 18 miles there, 18 miles back.

    I'm riding from my garage to my front door, taking the bike down to the garage, put it back on my car rack, then walking back upstairs to work.

    After work, I'll have to bring the bike back upstairs, ride it down around the house to the garage and put it back on the car rack.

    Most likely drive to work. Stinkin' amateur hour.

    Though I guess it is good they are on their bikes, many think they are still in their car. I about ran into some fool talking on his cell while riding his bike on last weeks Earth Day.

    Odd how they can't differentiate between bike to work and car to work.

    I can see it now, "Hey, where's 'back-up' on this thing?"

    Guess everybody can't be a Mother Luvin' Professional Commuter™ like you, eh? Why I bet none of thosefoolish amateurs are so dang special that they can remember when a year they almost ran into somebody who wasn't perfect like LAJ.

    Me, I'll be cycling to the free breakfast. Normally I'd be at work by the time breakfast starts at 7am, lucky for me it is held on Friday and I cycle to work 4 10's M-Th, Unfortunately one of the few regular bike commuters from this area and the most pleasant biker I knew will no longer be attending since he passed away since last year's event.

    I'll be riding around the block, or, doing a 30+ mile loop if it's a nice day!

    It's nice to be retired!!!!!

    I always bike to work and bike everywhere.

    I think I should rent a Hummer for the day.
