    How long is your commute?

    Granted, you can go through every nook and cranny of town and have a monstrous commute...How long is your commute on the main route you take?

    Mine is about 8 miles to work, and 10 miles (i take a more scenic route) on the way home...so 18 miles roundtrip.

    shortest route: 1.5miles one way
    longer route: 5 miles one way.

    I usually take short route in, and for lunch, then the longer route home. So about 9.5 miles/day. It's nice to have such a short option, for when I'm late or something.

    10.5 miles one-way, mostly flat, but the streets cause me to do intervals between the lights, to avoid issues with cagers.

    There are longer routes I can take home, but so far, I've not gone that route.

    4 miles short route, round trip down a dangerous main road, 9 miles round trip down my usual side street route, 19 miles round trip fall and spring scenic route just to enjoy riding.

    18 miles each way by bike, 20 miles each way by car. The bike path is more direct than the roads, now if I could just get my bike to go as fast as the car

    14 mile round trip. I do a bike/train/bike commute, so my 14 miles of riding saves me a 70-mile round trip drive every day!

    19.6km each way. Not too short, so I get some exercise, and not so far that it takes too long to ride it.
    If we learn from our mistakes, I must be a goddamn genius.

    My new commute (to college) is about 7-7.5 miles each way with a lot of pretty moderate hills. My old commute (to my internship) was about 12.5 miles each way, and more hilly.
