I don’t drive. Never had my license. And I live in a fucking RV. My house has wheels and I can’t drive it. Life is funny like that. And I work from home. I will ride my bike to procure booze.

Web nerdery. Mostly doing websites for real estate agents. It sucks. But I can touch my bed while I work. That is awesome.

Nope! Because:
– I don’t have a bike
– It would be remarkably unsafe in this traffic (narrow streets and no cycle path)
– I’m off from work this week :)

My mother and father did today. I don’t work today, but I would.
My boyfriends father is in the symphony orchestra and a bunch of them biked to work.

Not I. Like wildflower, I don’t own a bike. For me its a catch 22. I now live two miles from my work and I tell myself that I don’t use much gas so there is no problem driving. Before I moved though, I lived about 20 miles from work and I told myself that 40 miles a day is to much biking for me.

Now if I still had my motorcycle….

I started cycling to work a week ago, and though my legs are killing me now, it’s definitely worthwile.

My city (Edinburgh) is fairly cycle-friendly though.

I would if I could, but one, I don’t have a bike, two, it’s raining here today, and I’m not that much of a trooper, three, I live 25 miles from work and have to leave before sunrise, and the roads here are not conducive to safe bicycle riding.

But my kudos to those who did!

all those things bsilver is saying sounds better and better, in the dark rain, man, when you get there you’ll be so glad you did it

I work at home. I guess I could circle the house. My husband rides his bike to work most days. Having had this after years of long commutes and traffic, I love it, and would have to make living close enough to work to bike a factor in any future relocations.

Yes, but I ride my bike to work everyday.

@gsiener: just bcuz you do it everyday doesnt water down its importance or relativity to bike day.
Its not safe for me to ride a bike to my job, but I probably would if I had a helmet and maybe a…. Wait, no! What am I saying?! I’m NOT ever riding my bike to work!!!
