How far do you go?
How far do you go?
From earlier polls I'd say quite a few people have longer commutes than that. Me, i'm just short of the 10 miles by a few hundred meters.
Ditto. 9.5 miles now...
"I had this baby hand made in Tuscany, from titanium blessed by the pope. It weighs less than a fart, and costs more than a divorce..."
21 miles one way
I take the commuter train home, so I get 10-15 miles in the afternoon.
I'm between 10 to 10.5 depending on the route I take. A couple of hills.
It's still a fairly comfortable commute depending on the weather, but I haven't ridden through the summer season yet. Not looking forward to the warm temps.
23.4 miles r/t 4 days a week
32 mi RT, sometimes more depending on the length of the day.

9.5 - 11 hilly miles each way depending on which route I take
31 miles RT for me
31 hilly miles round trip. I can't do it everyday though as it consumes about 3 hours on the bike each day.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
34.2 miles round trip. Mostly rural...takes about an hour +/- 10 minutes depending on the weather.
31 hilly miles RT twice a week on Tues and Thurs. I can't do Monday or Wednesday due to my wife's schedule, and I don't want to ride Friday because I haul all my week's crap home that day. I usually do the round trip in about 2:20 to 2:30 total. With the time change I'm starting to leave the house about 6 AM so I can get in early, then leave about 4:30 so I have a bit of light left to start out, and get home before 6 PM.

While my direct route is only 4.5 miles one-way (flat), I use it only in really foul weather.
My preferred routes to work are 16.3 (flat to rolling) and 9.6 miles (hills), and my preferred route home is 12.9 (rolling).
My two favorite things in life are libraries and bicycles. They both move people forward without wasting anything.
The perfect day: Riding a bike to the library.—Peter Golkin
Lucky for me, I work at a library and bike to work.
I ride 15+ miles 1 way. it's closer to 32 RT.
This pic is from about 4 miles in.. 10.5 +/- away from the destination marked with the arrow.
Nashville, like L.A. without a tan.
12 miles, one way
12 each way, co-workers look at me like I'm from mars.
Every 2 weeks I do a 15 mile commute one way, 30 mile round trip. Normally it's more like 2 round trip.

― Ralph Waldo Emerson, Emerson in His Journals
33-40 miles round trip for me depending on what routes I take.
Live boldly, minimally & deliberately.
The direct route is only 4 1/2 miles, but I often do extended rides after work of 10-30 miles.
Freedom is free. It's included in democracy. Democracy is hard. It involves dealing rationally with people you disagree with.
25 miles round trip
52 miles - round trip
That's gonna leave a mark.
For a couple of years 21 miles round trip until it was time to move this summer, now only 15. If you don't have lots of traffic and stops, 10 miles each way is just about the ideal length.
13-16 miles one way. I rarely ride both ways on the same day. Takes me 1-1.5 hours. I prefer the longer hillier route when I have the time.
Between 11 and 15 miles one way, depending on the route. The short route traverses 4 miles of gravel road, so it can be close to impassable when I'm on the road bike and it's been recently graded (so it's all loose rocks). It's not pleasant at those times even on the fat tire bike. If I'm on the road bike and it's a nice day I'll take the 15 mile route.
Work: the 8 hours that separates bike rides.
35 miles RT 3-4 times a week. It is about 65 minutes one way so it is not much slower than driving depending on the traffic.
