    My normal commute is 17 miles door to door. But if i throw in a training ride in the morning with the group i will get about 52 miles by the end of the day.

    11 miles each way - Enfield to Farringdon in London.
    Pretty good with the cycle infrastructure now in Enfield down to the North Circular.
    And then on to the sights and sounds of Wood Green, very often punctuated by an interesting smelling herb that the youth like to burn :ohmy:

    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.

    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.

    I do indeed . Work in the CBD, so head down Mounts Bay Road along the Swan river cycle path, through Dalkeith and up through Mt Claremont. Stunning scenery & cycle paths are fab.

  14. I am currently doing a 15.5 miles route into work. I was forced into a shorter 14.5 miles commute but it had road works and busy junction making it at least as long elapsed time wise.
