    1 from the public sidewalk to our walk then 10 steps up to the front door. It's annoying enough that I want to find a way to put a carport under a deck out back. Since it would get both of my bikes out of the living room, I think I've got my wife on board!

    Three flights if I am too impatient to wait for the freight elevator at the office.
    Going up with road shoes is easier than coming down.

    townhouse front so 3 steps - I think. Or 4.

    I would to the back from the basement, but the basement needs decluttering to make that possible, and its a fairly steep slope up from the backyard to level ground.

    3: 1 from road to house walkway, 1 to porch, and 1 up into the house.

    My bike stays in the basement/storage/laundry area of our apartment building, so it's one step up through the entrance door for the building, and then down a half flight (split level entry to our apt. bldg.), or approximately 8 steps. In the AM it's the reverse, so up about 8 steps to get it outside.

    At work there are no steps involved. I can walk in and out of our building's lower level to either of the streets it borders w/o using stairs.

    Zero. Bike rolls right into/out of the shed at home, and at work I roll right up to the bike racks in the garage.

    Zero. One if I bring the bike into the kitchen at night. Yes, the kitchen.

    [But if an elevator is available, I will choose that over the stairs.]
