I just realized Bike To Work Day is next week.

Who's in?
What are you riding?
How far's your commute?
What post commute beverage will you have when you finish?

I've officially been relieved of kid drop off duties, so I'm shooting to do the full commute both ways on the Salsa Casseroll singlespeed. Can't remember how far it is but round trip should end up between 48 and 56 miles (need a 7 day get in shape crash course :thumbsup: )

I'm driving to work with my bike in the car!

Really though, I have to get to work by 6AM and setup the energizer station and pass out goodies to other bike commuters. Stop by downtown Palo Alto and say hi. Then for the second half, I'm gonna be riding around to other energizer stops to help out where needed.

Everybody join in if you can! If you can't ride, take transit if possible.

Hybrid Theory

Since I live in South San Jose and work in Livermore, I am doing a hybrid commute. I'll be driving to Fremont and park near the energizing station at Warm Springs / Mission, fill up on goodies and then bike it from there. Googlemaps lists the route as 25mi each way (coming back is gonna SUCK) :eekster: I'm taking my SC Chameleon with WTB All-Terrainasaurus tires. I plan on making a co-worker ride with me (he's got a rode bike :rolleyes: ).

I ride to work, more than I drive. :)
It is only about 14miles each way.
Hey, May is bike to work month, so get on it! :D
I've been trying to figure out a way to do the Wednesday night rides and still ride to work in Santa Clara. The train schedules are really hard to work around. :/

Looks like you have two reasonable choices for CalTrain. Santa Clara - 5:10 -> Belmont - 5:38 or Lawrence - 5:39 -> San Carlos 6:04 -> ride up San Carlos till it becomes Alameda de Las Pulgas and meet up with the group at Ralston.

If I'm feeling up to it I'll be riding in, too. Slide, we should coordinate schedules. If so, I think I'm going to ride down Market st. this year instead of along the Embarcadero. I hear Market St. on BTWD is a real gas.

I bike commute on an old Rockhopper about twice as often than I drive -- 9 miles from downtown Sunnyvale to north San Jose. Almost half of it is on bike path or levee. They just built 2 bike bridges over 101 and 237, at Borregas, which I now use.

The week after Bike to Work Week I'll see just the regulars again.

Sunnyvale to Moffett Field, I guess it's about 5-1/2 miles each way. I'll be doing a lot of bike commuting for the next couple of weeks as my wife has our only working car on a road trip to Las Vegas!

Hope I'm not considered a spammer for this... This whole month if you ride to the Trek retail store you get a free tune up. Parts are not included (that's how we make a few bucks) but service is completely free! So ride to work and get your bike tuned at the same time. I just got hired there and I will be starting June 1st so come see me sometime.

Wow. Slacker route, or what? Your boss just called and told me to tell you to take Central to Montague and hurry the f' up.
