Each way varies 4-12mi depending on the several factors. Average I'm guessing 5-6mi.

Mine's 9 miles right on the dot each way. They're building a new road that should be done this spring that'll bring it down to around 8.

4.5 miles one way. I usually try to take a longer route home, up a 1/2 mile hill, adds another mile or two (not exactly sure as I have no computer on my bike).
I also usually run about 3 miles on my break during the work day.

I would think some places to the west and north, and Gozo especially would be nice for cycling, but I can't imagine cycling anywhere near the harbors or the eastern coast. I'd be terrified! Hopefully the place has become a little more bicycle friendly since I was there.
