    16 mile round trip on busy commuter route. Faster than both car and public transport (just slightly sweatier).

    2.89 miles. Out off town down a slope through next town and at “work”. Takes about 15 mins. Love it in the summer mornings at seven. Been doing it a year now. And my works meant to be moving even closer in the future. To about a mile from my house....

    You need to start adding 20 miles to your journey each way ;)

    5 miles each way. hardly gets the heart rate up. mostly cycle paths and maybe 3/4 of it on road.

    Rarely have time for detours though. I just started cycling to cut down on the massive transport bill I had :smile:

    Just started a short (11.6km) commute to work. Found a nook to park and cycle from there. Breaks the 240km round trip.
