    I drive a school bus, and I park my bike inside the garage. One day, I returned from my route to find some smart-ass teenager riding it. He was my boss's son, so I didn't make an issue of it. But from then on, I locked it with a very inexpensive $5 cable combination lock from WalMart, which I can attach/unlock in 10 seconds. It's a 3-number combination, but I only move one number one notch when I lock it, so I can get it on and off fast. It could be cut very easily, but in low risk areas, it does the job. When I'm in a high risk area, I use a U-lock, which takes a bit more time to get on and off.

    Bike stays in cube behind me in front of my desk (never used). I share a cube so my side is packed with clothes (sometimes on a makeshift clothesline when I'm drying wet clothes) and bike gear. In winter, I still bring it in, but I try to shake off the slush on the way in and put down a layer of scrap paper on the carpet for melting icicles and stuff...

    I barely have room to move but it's real cozy that way.

    Outside in the cold but under CCTV..
    Currently riding an MTB with a split personality - commuting, touring, riding for the sake of riding, on or off road :)

    I'm lucky enough to have a parts cage near a machine I operate.It stays in there where I can keep a close eye on it.Once someone moved it joking around.I don't think it will happen again.

    It's great to ride a bike.

    I only commute by bike on Fridays which is a 70 mile round trip for me. The look on co-workers faces. I get much respect as a result so I park the Orbea in the conference room. All employees are required to pay homage as they pass my pedal powered rocket.

    In my office/cubicle, year round. So far my office mate has not complained. A couple other guys I work with do the same, and we have pushed the company to provide a storage room or bike lockers. They won't even put a rack outside, although even if they did, I'd probably still keep it in my cubicle.

    Downstairs in the garage of the building. Keeps it nice and dry and away from the elements (handy, even if it is only my old beater hybrid), and it's a pretty secure area. I use a U-lock to secure it to a floor-to-ceiling post, and the garage can only be accessed by people with security cards for the building. Makes me pretty confident that the bike will be there for the ride home in the afternoon....

    Lucky for me at my school we have a shed where we put our bikes. Its good but the roof leaks ...but the door locks. Its a good place to go when its raining and good to store all your books in.
