I wish I had the option. My manager once threatened to take away my drive-home priviledges with the company van. I just laughed because then I could ride to the office and they'd have to pay me more time every day because currently my drive time is not billable unless it's over an hour so I go off the clock when I leave the job site and head home. If I had to go back to the offfice I wouldn't go off clock until I got back there.

There are certainly no safe paths for me. For those who live in Tampa I have to go from waters and countryway in westchase to waters and florida area. definately not safe ride. I could suck it up and ride the sidewalk but seriously...yuck

Don't think I'll be riding to work.  I-4 is certain death.

I rode this morning instead of working. Does that count?
My bike is more than a toy; it's my vessel.

I thought about riding while I was at work.  I think that should count for something...
 
 
I live in Brandon and work over by Int'l Plaza by the airport.  My routes would be either I4, Hwy 60, Causeway, or the Crosstown.  Pretty sure I'd get arrested riding a bike on I4 or the Crosstown.  Also pretty sure I'd get killed trying to ride with the idiot drivers on 60 or Causeway.  Long story short...no way in hell any sane person would ride my commute.
