    I think I'm a commuter, as I have now done 2 out of 3 days by bike, so I have a 26 return journey, pretty flat as it's near to the sussex coast. A mix of dcway and rural roads, the 13 miles journey in 46 minutes on day 1, and 44 minutes today. Return journey a little longer as I meet the OH halfway home.
    It's great to be at work after cycling, and not having to sit in traffic.
    I love it, and I'm well happy!

    i used to be 8-10 miles each way due to moving i'm now 2-3 miles each way. This isn't doing any good for my overall fitness

    ..and the reason for not extending your commute is?

    I'm enjoying the 8 min cycle to work it means i can start and finish earlier :smile: . In turn was supposed to free up some evening time for cycling that was the theory !!

    i just tried my new job commute..2 routes tried for time and ease..
    about 6 miles for both routes..
    one route is safer and avoids most roads..i like this one ..

    i had a guy in a Passat drive straight in front of me on a roundabout ..not a care in the world ..no look nothing ..ffs i gave him a tosser wave but i doubt he saw it..

    I commute 12 miles each way probably about half on track and half on a busy fairly fast road. Not pretty, but enough to give you a good feeling arriving at work in time for a hot shower and a cup of tea knowing you've put in a good workout.

    3 and a half miles there and then the same for coming back, making a total of 7 miles.

    I'm doing a round trip of 31 miles a few times per week. Luckily it's mainly on cycle paths.
