    3.2 Miles each way. A bit boring, so I have been using the Single speed on a 34/14t ratio, to make life a little more interesting, especially on the final hill

    28 miles ? Wow, that's nearly as much as I do both ways in one week!

    Well done

    Just started, 27 mile round trip. Only done it one day each week so far but hoping to get more in as the weather gets better.
    My problem is my job is physically demanding and I'm walking approx 17 thousand steps a day. I've not really got organised yet either, blooming running around at each end trying to remember and get everything together.

    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)

    A circuit of Glasgow for work today.
    Maryhill to Sandyhills to Drumchapel to Pollokshields and back to Maryhill.
    38 miles.
    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.
     
  14. 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.

    It's amazingly quiet on they country back roads going out of London. :okay:

    Some great views too.
