I have to get everything ready the night before, or it doesn't get done.
9 miles each way, flat, semiurban
5 days a week (unless it rains or I work night shifts, in which case I drive, but it's rare)
25 miles each way...onto day 3 now and I really need to get a pair of padded shorts or go commando
I live two miles from work, but i go the longway round and cover 12.5 miles in the morning otherwise i dont manage to get many miles in for the week.
A circuit of Glasgow for work today.
Maryhill to Sandyhills to Drumchapel to Pollokshields and back to Maryhill.
The rain stayed off and I was back home in the works time.
25 mile round trip 3-5 times a week depending on shift paterns. I will finally bite the bullet and carry this on through the winter as over the last couple of months I have been amazed at how much more spare cash I have saving on travel and the obligitory "couple of pints" after work.
23 miles each way on a good day. Typically 4 days a week and work from home one day! I did do 5 days a week for about two/three months tho!
23 miles today .
Three houses to visit. Lot of traffic but no rain so can't grumble.
Home in the works time as well.
10 miles each way.
By careful route planning I've got it up to 8 miles on farm tracks, quiet lanes and and canal towpath. The only downside being the outlay for decent lights as I ride all year round and I don't swim well.
I'm going through a lazy phase so I'm getting up later and using the narrow cycle farcility alongside the A1. That brings my commute down to 6miles (26 mins at Z1 recovery pace). I wouldn't want to go much on that farce anyway. At night I usually go back via the country lanes which is about 8-9miles.
43km to get there, will start adding the bike back next week.
It's amazingly quiet on they country back roads going out of London.
Some great views too.
8 miles into work in the morning but I take a longer route back (12miles)mainly uphill to stretch it out to 20 miles.
15 miles each way but only for school terms and I drive there.
1.7 miles each way. Along a dead flat promenade by the sea.
Life is good.
40 miles minimum round trip, which I try to do Mon, Wed & Fri. Love it in the summer
