I ride 3 1/2 miles in about 20 minutes. Same distance home add 5 minutes for nasty hill and a relentless head wind.
5 miles. 20-24 minutes in, 17-20 minutes home.
Unless there is snow, in which case it can take up to and over an hour to get to/from work. Good workout though.
10.5 miles each way, 35-45 minutes depending on the lights and car traffic
3.8 miles. 15-25 minutes depending on traffic lights, which bike I'm riding and atmospheric conditions.

My commute is now a flight of stairs.
Guess I should get a BMX bike and learn how to pogo-stick up them.
It's six miles to downtown, and it takes me about 20-25 minuets to get there.
If I have a trailer load of groceries it takes me about 30-35 minuets to get back.

JesseDuncan:I just love how "cars will be forced to cross the double yellow lines on dangerous limited visibility roads".
I don't want to have a head on but oh god, I HAVE to fling myself into oncoming traffic to pass, theres no alternative!!!
18 miles each way. Today it took me 56 minutes in and 58 minutes back (was on my road bike) Usually I putz along on my commuter and it takes about an hour and 15.
Almost exactly 3 miles. I've timed it only a few times, fastest was 9mins 36secs, but I think generally about 11-12 minutes. Maybe 30-40 ft of elevation gain/loss over the entire commute. In other words pancake flat in the world of cycling.
Last year (before I started working here) was 15 miles - 52-55 minutes in the AM; 42-47 minutes on the way home.... nasty 2 mile hill on the way in to work in the morning. 8-10 minutes up about 1 minute down.

12 miles to work, almost all mountain narrow road climb, the final kick being about 14%!
I did it today riding an easy pace in 51 minutes.
Going home is only about 9 miles with a slow section of MUP for a bit near the end, ya a different way than to work and I make it home in about 26 minutes
4 miles, approx. 25 minutes, approx. 500 feet of climbing hills each way-depending on traffic and load. I typically ride with anywhere from 40-55 lbs. including bike.
to work 18.5 miles/1:10 minutes 1400ft climbing
from work 18.5 miles/1:10 minutes 600ft climbing, would be quicker but I hit city traffic for 3 miles and have one long climb.
5 miles / 20 minutes each way except when the winds are strong.
14.66 miles in the morning...around an hour, depends on the wind. around 16 home depending on the route usually a couple of minutes over an hour. I vary my pace home and sometimes make stops so the time and route can vary.
17.5 miles, just over 1 hour on the way to work due to some long hills. I enjoy some of the downhills on the return, but add a couple of climbs to avoid a traffic circle. Smiling all the way. I'm out of town now, but back on the road by Wednesday. Got to get ready for an MS ride at the end of June.
