    I walk my commute each morning... about 20 feet from bedroom to kitchen.

    12 miles each way, along the Basingstoke canal. Lovely in the morning or afternoon when it's not dark yet, but that's about over for a while.. Sometimes with my 3 year old on a back seat who absolutely loves it!

    My average commute is about 16 miles and have been doing this on average 3 days a week for about 5 years. To keep it interesting I've got about 5 different variations which add a bit extra or take a slightly different route

    At the moment my commute is from my bed to the desk, so about two metres. In the new year it's likely to be about six miles each way.

    I've just moved house. I used to have a reasonable commute of 12 miles with 3 reasonable pulls that got you out the saddle and the heart pumping. My new commute isn't much longer at 15 miles each way but it's all down hill on the way to work and obviously all up hill on the way home. I still chuckle when I pass the point on my old commute when I was too frightened to continue for fear I wouldn't have the engine to get home. I'm hoping this new commute is the same, as it looks like a long slog home for un uphill weakling.

    My commute changed this week as I got a transfer to a store nearer to where I live and shorter shifts too. Can leave Bonnie now so no taking her to daycare first and no train so instead of two hour commute each way it's now a just under 3 mile pootle, lovely :smile:

    I average 40km per day monday to friday ... (I work at several different sites daily)...

    add my weekend riding, and I average just over 300km/week. I'm hoping to increase the distances of my weekend rides in Spring/summer and am hoping to ride approx 180km+ over weekends (120km ride and a 60km+ ride)

    That is serious work!

    I feel very lucky that it's uphill in the morning for me, and an easy downhill after a long day in the office....

    11 miles each way, still building up to doing the full 5 days a week..... Usually do 2 or 3 days per week

    8 miles in 8 miles back. All downhill in and a slog home. Regardless of how far it is I feel the act of motivating yourself to actually get on the bike at 0600hrs, especially in winter, is more satisfying than the ride itself..lol. :biggrin:

    I like that moment after having showered, feeling fresh and fit at the start of a working day..
