Bike-to-Work Day

bike-shop2.jpgWith National Bike-to-Work Day coming up next Friday, we thought we’d take a moment to share with you a little corner of the Logos offices that you might not know exists—the bike shop.

Equipment purchases at Logos typically include laptops, servers, and networking gear. So Bob was a little surprised to see an IT department purchase request that included everything necessary to set up a bicycle repair shop, but he supported the project from the get-go.

When asked about the bike shop, Bob said, “It was a great idea. Many of our employees bike to work, and others go for rides during the day. Having a fully equipped bike shop on site is a great way to encourage healthy habits that are good for the environment, too.”

The bike shop is equipped with everything you would find in your local bike shop. With so many specialty tools, thankfully we have a number of avid bikers and former bike shop employees—including our IT Manager, Jim Straatman—who are more than willing to lend a helping hand to employees who aren’t sure what to do.

Hopefully we’ll see a big response from employees next Friday, and lots of folks will bike in to work. For added motivation, that Friday will also be the day of our annual Chili Cookoff. Now we can all enjoy an extra helping of chili, knowing that we can bike off the extra pounds on our way home from work.

    It’s funny, as I read the article part of me was thinking “That sounds like a great place to work.” While at the same time the pragmatic side of me was saying “Only on the west coast…”

    Excellent article. If you can bike to work, go do it. People tend to forget just how much distance they can travel with pedal power. I would love to work at Logos. When are you going to establish an East Coast satellite? :)

  3. I miss Bellingham! And I didn’t even know that I had the greatest Bible software company right under my nose when I was there…

  4. I wonder how many of us are avid Logos users and cyclists?!? Perhaps we need a Logos jersey for us to purchase and wear while riding. Not only could we show off our love for Logos, but it could be another discussion starter that can help us move the conversation to spiritual issues with those we ride with. If they are believers, then they need to hear about this software; if they are not believers, then they need to hear about the Saviour (and then of course, what better tool to help them learn how to study the Bible with than Logos!).

  5. Thank you for creating a Logos jersey…just pre-ordered mine!
