4.5 one way, if I don't take shuttles/light rail. I commute to San Mateo from San Jose, CA. ETA: Whoops! I should clarify. I commute using train, bike, and other various public transit services.

Chief Brody, curious about where you are commuting to and from in Portsmouth. I just moved up to Providence from there.
I live off of Bristol Ferry Rd...there's not much more of Portsmouth to the north of me. I commute to Chases Ln in Middletown.

7.5 miles each way on rural roads and highways here in Okeechobee, Florida. Three miles are on a marked 'bike route' on the highway, but the rest is neighborhood streets and rural roads.

16-17 miles each way. I live in Mill Valley, CA but commute into San Francisco over the Golden Gate Bridge. Humbly I have to say this must be one of the more scenic bike commutes you could do.

About 14.5 miles each way (a little shorter going to work, a little longer going home); a little over 10 miles of it on the MUP. Just east of city of Sacramento.

I did 17 ea way for a couple years not every day not year round, then when we moved and it dropped to 13 ea way I got serious and went year round though not every day. 13 is perfect in my opinion. long enough to warrant the hassle with food clothing and nutrition planning. 17 wasn't too bad but 13 is like a little over an hour give or take depending on weather and that's a good commute time, even in a car. longer than that and it gets into more of your day. multiply that by the round trip and it really sucks up time.

I'm at 22.5 miles now ea way and haven't done it on a week day yet, even after almost 3 yrs. I've done about 1/2 dozen weekend trials. I'm looking to leave this place but if I don't this spring/summer I just might get a weekday ride in ...
