    About 1.5 hours each way. I only ride one way each day though. 3 hours a day was just too much for me. I alternate with my motorcycle.

    Much cooler and less humid this morning. Really enjoyed it. I even broke out a light jacket. Of course I warmed up and it got a little too warm in the jacket.
