    depending upon where I'm working, one way trip might be a minimum of 38 miles, maximum of 185 miles..... sometimes I get to drive through the mountains & up the North Fork (Potomac), other times through the New River Gorge...... my usual trip is @ 70 miles - 1/2 hour on country roads, 40 minutes on the highway (usually empty; not too many peeps in WV!).

    8 mile drive to the park 'n' ride takes me about 15 minutes.
    10 mile ride the rest of the way to work is about 45 minutes.

    If I rode the whole way, I could make it a 16mi one-way trip. Not unreasonable, but I start work at 6:30. To get there on time and have a shower and some breakfast, I'd have to leave around 4:15am. Screw that.

    17 miles, 30 minutes by car, 1:15 (more or less) by bike.
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    How often do you commute by bike?

    Honestly? Not much so far this year. I like to think I can do it about half the time but this year I've had too many interruptions.

    Before my office moved and my commute was 7 miles I rode more than I drove.

    2 and a half hours is a long time to commit to a daily commute.

    Yes, and that's exactly what's keeping me off the bike these days. Normally I hope to commute maybe twice a week, and I think I came close last year when my commute distance increased to 17 each way. This year, though, several things have interrupted my cycling: Business trips in January, then the bad weather, then I had some issues with my dogs, then my wife had surgery. I hope this all quiets down and I can start to ride some more.

    52 miles one way it usually takes one hour, I'm sick to death of it, even more so with the higher gas prices, I've been doing similar distances for almost 5 years now.

    I guess I'm kind of lucky in a way, at least I can go 70-75 mph most of the way with no heavy traffic.

    I used to work in Denver, 45 miles door-to-door. It took about an hour to an hour and 15 minutes to drive, depending upon the traffic. Bad weather though, could stretch that from 2 to 3 hours or more.

    If I took the bus, that was a 12 minute drive to the Park and Ride, then another hour and 30 minutes for the bus ride. Much longer, but I could read my book. And I didn't have to pay for parking.

    Taking the light rail meant a 45 minute drive, and 20 minutes on the train. Also, no parking costs.

    Now I work from home and my commute is about 8 seconds, give or take. I much prefer this.

    I also work from home now, thank god. My last commute was 50-90 minutes each way depending on traffic, in the Bay Area. That was horrible. Before that, it was 8 miles, I biked it about 3 times a week in summer and took the long way home.

    By car 20 minutes, by bike 1.25 hours. But I'm currently interviewing for a job that at least temporarily would give me an hour and a half commute.
