6 miles over all, in four 1.5 mile stages. (Bike - train - Bike twice). Last week though, cycled home all the way. 21 miles (took me 2 hours though, not including a little rest in Richmond Park)


Back in 2010 I used to commute from Hounslow to Grays Inn Road which was a hell of a long way at least 12 and a half miles. That was when I sold the Big Issue. It used to take an hour and a half.

Out: 6,5km Floreat (where the 1962 Commonwealth games were held, now a bunch of houses) to Perth city centre, Oz.
In: 19Km long route home along the Swan River
Do you go past the Uni and Dalkeith? That's quite a scenic route, I've ridden it before.


If i take the shortest most direct route it's 4.5 miles which is too short (unless i'm running really late :rolleyes:) so tend to extend it to 20+ miles for the journey in and 10+ miles for the return leg. I'm quite fortunate in that the majority of my journey is on quiet roads and have several options route wise.

When I was at work my commute from 2008 to 2017 was 15 miles each way, from Stowmarket to Ipswich. Most of it was quite pleasant in the countryside. I did change the route over the years as it got busier and in the end too scary to cope with Mrs Shearwater was always worried until she heard the garage door. I only did it 2-3 days a week.
