I have been commuting to work for the last three weeks, not everyday but at least two days a week and I am going to do three this week. My usual commute is just under 7 mile one way and I now have it to where I can do it in under 30 minutes. One my way home last night I went a different way with a couple long and short climbs and it was just under 11 mile on the way home.
What we are looking at doing is our 4 year old goes to day care about 6 miles from our house and about 5 miles from our work. I would like to take her to school in her trailer and leave the trailer at the day care and then ride the rest of the way to work and then repeat at the end of the day riding to her day care and hooking up the trailer and then taking her home. My wife will more then likely also do the ride with me as we work within 1/2 mile of each other. She starts at 8am and I am flexible with my start time although I would like to start by 7:30. She gets off work at 4:30 and then we can both head up.
On foul weather days we will carpool together. I am planning on getting rid of my car at the end of october because it is going to need too much for inspection and I'm not going to spend the money on a car that isn't worth it.
Would we be pushing it too much to try and accomplish this before winter sets in or should we wait till the end of winter beginning of spring to attempt this? We just started riding about a month ago.
