    Where does your steed spend the day while you are at work?

    Under the stairs at one of my offices and in the foyer bike rack at the home office. I used to bring it up to my office, but I never got any work done as I spent all day drooling over her and dreaming about all the dirty things we could do....

    Mine spends the day in a dusty dirty shop and then I take her home on urban roads and bike trails for more of the same.

    Our building has locked bike cages for the various tenants. I just ride into the basement, lock my bike in our cage and get the goods lift up to my floor :-)

    Outside on a covered porch, locked to a granite column that a 6' cable barely reaches around. I have to put another cable & lock through the column cable to lock the bike. Once the contracted lawn mowers "took my spot" and locked a push mower to my cable. We don't have keys to the building and I'm often last to leave, but luckily I have not yet left the building without the keys to the bike.

    Comes in with me, and waits in the back of the store. Good to work in a bike friendly place.

    Locked to a large table near my private entrance, usually.

    If it looks like rain or snow during my shift, I move it into the boiler room and lean it against an unused toolbox, unlocked just in case somebody needs to move it.

    If the plant is closed and there are only a few people working, I ride it right through the recieving department and into the maintenance shop. That`s nice because I can also use it to "commute" back and forth between the shop and wherever I find myself working that day.

    I the entryway of our office - Unless It's the mountain bike and the trails were muddy, then I have to hide it somewhere outside.

    I telecommute 4 days per week, so my bikes are right underneath me (in the garage). On the days I have a chance to ride to work, my bikes sit right inside my cubicle.

    About 15 feet away from me, in the corner of my work area that also holds spare parts for the cheap crap I have to build.

    i work in an aircraft factory. it's against the rules, but after telling them the value of the bike and clearing it with my boss, security allowed me to bring it inside the plant and lock it up on the 3rd level of my shop. i'm not allowed to ride it in the plant though, even though there are company bikes everywhere that people use to get around the plant.

    In this ghetto little rack outside. locked up with a bunch of department store garbage and two very... idiotic Giant 29'ers. One of whom tried to explain to me the magic of his wheel size.

    I proceeded to ask him his stem length, crank length, who did his fitting, why he only locks up the one QUICK RELEASE front wheel and then let him know the MSRP on my frame is more than the price of his entire bike.

    He of course, in his expert need to educate me. was unable to answer any questions. When I said he looked a bit dry and offered him some Tri-FLow. he said he wasn't thirsty...

    But I NEED 29's... because like... they roll more.

    (P.S. I actually dig 29'ers, just not being told to buy one from this guy.)

    Used to give it a spare wall in my office but lately it's been an empty cubicle. I switched to a standing desk and now that spare wall is occupied by the chair I pushed away. I will need to do some thinking if that empty cubicle gets occupied. The chair is nice to have around to eat lunch and take phone calls in.

    I work at a large soybean processing plant as a millwright. My boss gave me a garage door opener to the shop to mount on my bike, so I can ride in and out each night. He then insists that I leave it next to my work area in the shipping and receiving area. This area is next to a security camera, so no one messes with my bike.

    I stick mine in the warehouse wherever it fits, usually in the inmost area. No security cameras but only 5 person company access so not much of a concern. Last job I had to use a rack 100 ft away from the building but it was 10 ft from the security guard. Rain was annoying though...

    I've been doing millwright work for the last 3 years. It's pretty cool. I get to work with lots of big equipment. I really have enjoyed metal work and fabrication. Something cool about sparks flying and glowing red metal. Love seeing the end results of a project.

    The owners of the company I'm working for think it's cool I ride in to work and let me keep it inside. About eight miles each way takes about a half hour to make it in by road and one hour if by trail. I can add more trail from behind my house but that would make it twenty to thirty minutes more. I need a light to and from work and try to stay off the road as much as possible.

    Locked to a light post in the parking lot. Security is pretty tight around here and it's an old beater so I don't worry about it.

    I work at a grocery store in my town, I keep him locked up in front of the store on one of the handicapped signposts so I'm always able to check on it when i gather baskets from the parking lot, and hope none of the senior citizens park too close to the post. (even though the bike is on the safer side LOL)

    Indoors, in a lab no one uses, with a bunch of compressed helium cylinders.

    I have no idea what use helium for.
