Alright. I'll put you in regardless. Earlier than June 10? I think June 10 is pushing for getting people's schedule in order! That's only 3 weeks from this Saturday.

As for June 10, I can't speak for you singles out there, but as a parent, it's almost impossible to make plans within three weeks.

My work has no showers or changerooms. I have just been changing in the basement next to where you lock up the bikes. Boy am I glad I didn't bike home in my brand new Sean John blazer! I'm freaking soaked! Its gonna really suck if its storming on the way to work because when I get there I just put on pants and a shirt over my undies and t-shirt. Spending all day in an office with soggy drawers ain't fun.

edit: Wes, je réponds à votre invitiation pour m'occuper de la clinique de piste sur le dixième juin.\\

also, we will see at the last minute if I'm up for the ride of silence.

Thus you deserve your wet undies.... tallboy..
I don't use the showers at work everyday but they sure are handy when you push too hard coming in and get all soaked and smelly.
Gives me a place to hang the rain gear as well. Thank goodness....how you finding the job shizy?

Oh man I am sooooo lucky to be where I am in terms of facilities. I even park in the pass accessed basement parking with the executives. My bike is nice and dry too. I think all companies should make some form of showering available to bike commuters. Either that of the building itself should include facilities and charge a slice of the rent to maintain them. As it is I pay 20 bucks a month, for the gym access (27-7), the change and showers.

Shiz...many other riders at the building? How long before you're caught with one foot in as it were?
Operator......avoid it as long as possible. Unless it's for spending money, for bikes, toys, or road trips.

It's days like today I love wearing cycling sandals. Unfortunately, I have to bail on the ride of silence. I got a funding proposal dumped on me that's due Friday and will have to work like a mad bahstahd to get it done.
