I try too as well. However this year our child care solution makes it impractical for me to ride on Tuesdays and Thursdays(wife has to work late) as it would be a lot of wasted time to ride home, get my truck and then go pick the kids up.

Oh well.

Since I got my Wee three months ago, I've ridden it to work every weekday except two. I'll admit it's pretty easy to ride where there are 300 sunny days a year.

I would ride to work, but since my company's work was outsourced to China, and I got laid off. I don't have a job any more. So how about I just ride around and call it work.

No thank you. The one or two days I ride to work I always remember why I don't ride to work. It takes 50% longer to get to work (I'm not riding the DC Beltway), plus I'd have a destination and a time requirement. When I ride I want no outside pressures on my mind. If I'm on a bike I'm in recreation mode, not work mode.

I would happily ride to work; I always did. I'd even feel good about paying taxes.
