May 12-16 is Bike/Bus/Walk to Work Week. Sign up if you haven't. I'm my companies sole participant. Though after a little more research carpooling counts so I might get a few more signed up. We're quite away from the SPR so its a haul. For me its about 43 kilometers one way. Makes a nice double training day, except I have to hit the road by 4:30 to make it to work in time to shower & make coffee before my 6:30am start time. Then I work till 5pm & ride home making it about 6:30pm when I get home. Makes for a long day, but hey I'm getting in the kilometers.
I've been doing it now for a couple of weeks. Usually I'll ride 3 days to work. This week I'm shooting for all 5 if the rain holds off. Had a close call last night but managed to stay dry even though the skies got really dark. One plus besides kilometers is gas savings. A conservative estimate is I'm saving about $150/ month in gas. That's almost a new CX bike by CX season. Sweet!
