Not only can I leave my bike against the wall in the office, I just changed my rear tyre while sitting at my desk. And then I got to borrow the manager's brand new floor pump he got from the bike shop earlier today.

BTW, there are shower facilities in the office also.

I thought you would all like to hear that :)

I'd have to say wrong on that one, but thanks for playing. Software company as a computer programmer.

I work in a software shop of about 16 programmers. Roughly 4 of the 16 ride to work.

25%, pretty good. What is it about the geeks?

We also have showers, but only one of the four rides far enough to bother wearing cycling clothes and then changing and showering.upon arrival.

Working from home makes it a challenge to add distance to your commute to work to get more riding in... But at least there are showers, bike and clothes storage/washing facilities, refrigerator privileges, lounge areas and flexible hours.

I took a straw poll while on the Great Vic Bike Ride last week and, apart from retirees, most adult riders were either in IT or were Engineers, with Finance Sector employees (includes Accountants, etc) a close third place.

Hmmm... no idea what we can deduce from that.

Oh BTW, I don't work from home. And the building manager enjoys cycling also, so he is fine with me bringing my bike into the foyer and elevators, even on rainy days. He says umbrellas and shoes bring in more rain water and mud than my bike could.

I think we can deduce that most Cyclists have a high IQ, whereas your typical Bogan was handed out the dregs from the bottom of the Gene Pool and their brains have never developed beyond the level of a 5th grader

Regarding bike-friendly jobs, has anyone seen this URL? http://domestique.com.au/ - I spotted a van parked near where I live with the URL on it - essentially it's a job placement company that proposes to put cyclists in touch with bike-friendly companies.
I would imagine that business is probably slow at the moment, but I think they're on to a winner if the trends continue.

Also, Cadel's spray in News.com.au today is a reminder that attitudes of our car-driving fellow road users need to update http://www.news.com.au/story/0,27574,24788969-421,00.html

I can see a new TV show, instead of "Are you smarter than a 5th greader", it could be "Are you smarter than a bogan in a ute"

We usually have out 10 bikes in the basement, but I have seen up to 20. They are just up against the wall. Our new office in North Sydney is supposed to have dedicated secure storage/lockers/showers for approximately 230 Bicycles, all part of the "Green Credentials" of the site.

Hey, another from North Sydney, or are you moving to North Sydney?
