Longest daily commute?

Just curious - who here pedals the farthest on their daily round-trip commute?

Mine's 16 miles round trip - should be easy to beat!

Mine is only 26 miles round trip, although I plan to increase it to 40 by the end of summer. We'll see how far I can push it.

If I did it round trip (which, presently, I don't), it would be 46 miles. By summer I plan on doing this round trip.

35 miles round trip. I know there are lots of people who can top that.

Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!

when you start a new topic you'll see an option for poll - check that then fill in the number of questions you want to ask, type of poll(yes, no, multiple answer) and the questions themselves.

It does mean you'll need to start a new topic though

70 kms = 43 miles round trip.

I ride it twice a week at this point, but might do as much as 3 times a week later in the season.
