It's gonna have to cool off here or mine stays at home ;(Ride To Work Day...June 21, 2010
pass it on...
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.I ride to work any day I can. better parking lol :thumbup:
I would happily ride to work; I always did. I'd even feel good about paying taxes.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.
While I don't blame you for not wanting to ride the DC Beltway to work, I actually find myself in a better mood when I get to ride vs having to take my truck. Plus, that is the majority of my riding, I don't get a lot of just because riding, but I'm trying to increase that.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 feel for ya. March 09 I got laid off of my job of 12.5 years, with the initial plan of using more India offshore programmers. Turns out the parent organization didn't like the fact they dumped a ton of long term employees, withdrew the money they were supposed to use to setup the increased outsourcing, and then sold the company off.I would ride to work, but since my company's work was outsourced to China, and I got laid off.
