I must say, that I am very, very fortunate to work at a very bike friendly job. In fact, my job is so bike friendly, that I have put off my retirement.
I work at an educational institution. I commute on bicycle and motorcycle 95% of the time.
I can keep my bicycle in my cube or a space about 20 feet from my cube. Never, ever outside. Also, here is where the super bike-friendly shows. On super rainy and storm-like
days on the return leg, I will leave my bike on the job. Nothing is said and it is all part of the office atmosphere. Also, when I ride my motorcycle to work,
no parking lots, my motorcycle comes to a special spot, where I can see it from my window, and it is away from everybody. When it rains, I have another spot, where I can park my motorcycle, which is secure and
away from the rain. Also, a couple years ago, when my coworkers saw that I was commuting on two wheels most of the time, and was putting my changes of clothes in my cabinets, they had a locker installed in my cube.
In my locker I keep three changes of clothes, and toilet items. The restroom is about 25 feet from my cube, so when I come in in the morning, I wash off, change clothes and get to work.
Today, is one of my double days. I have a bicycle and the motorcycle here together. I left the bicycle yesterday because of a storm, and I rode in this morning on the motorcycle. So, today I will take the bicycle to go to lunch about half a mile from my job, and leave it, and ride the motorcycle home.
One day, it got so good, whereas, I have left a bicycle here on the weekend because of the weather, and rode another bike in that Monday. That made me have two bicycles inside my job site, and everything is okay with my supervisors and co-workers. On that day I came up with the idea of telling my wife to meet me at work, and we can go have dinner on the bicycles. That worked out well, except the spot she picked to have dinner was $100 for the both of us.
Back to my bike friendly job. With this kind of treatment, along with the perk job, it is dam hard for me to retire at 74 years old. Going to put it off for another 6 months and see what goes then..
Ride safe everybody,
