Depends on the time of year and whether or not I go directly to work or run errands.

The colder it gets outside the slower I go, even though I feel like I'm working just as hard or harder. Below 50 degrees I lose about 1 mph off my average for every 10 degree temp drop. Also my winter bike is crazy slow with the studded tires.

Directly to work and back home ~16 miles round trip:
Summer - 35 minutes each way = 70 minutes
Winter - 1 hour each way = 120 minutes

In the summer I will often ride the long way to work or run errands at lunch or after work which can add up to an hour or more of saddle time to my regular commute.
