|I live fairly close to my office. If I go directly to and from work, 5 miles roundtrip 5 days a week. Besides being friendly to the environment, it's a great stress reliever. Plus my legs feel warmed up post-work when I do my training rides!|

|From home, 50 mile r/t, from a park-n-ride, 25 mile r/t. Usually will add to mileage after work making the 50 into a 64 and the 24 into a 37 mile ride.
Frequency varies from 5 days a week to none depending on personal time constraints, errands and weather. Average is about 3 times per week.
Side note: gsxrawd- do you ride a gixxer?

|Sometimes I stretch the ride home to 20-30 miles...
There's a killer downhill on the way in - which unfortunately means a killer uphill on the way home, right before my neighborhood, when I'm ready to just change and eat dinner :(

|the craphole that it is, my commute was 32 miles round trip.
I got into a car accident and the bodyshop kept my car for 4 months. i commuted 32 miles, 5 or 6 days a week for 97 days straight, through the "winter" in jacksonville, florida. nothing quite like rainy, dark and 45 degrees to motivate you to get on the bike! other than that, i tried to commute about 3 days a week.

|I go directly to work because I'm not a morning person and the 5.4 mile direct route does not require a shower afterwards.
I generally take a long route home, giving 15 miles round trip. When I get a chance, I add an 18 mile side-trip on a nice bike path, and turn the commute into decent base miles.
I TRY to cycle-commute every workday, but the last few weeks have been a nightmare. Between breakdowns, needing to haul more than a bike can carry, and working late, I've been lucky to get 30 miles a week commuting.

|27 mi. one way with a couple good hill climbs. twice a week.
My neighbor who owns a bike, drives 2 blocks. I can hear him drive his truck the whole way every morning. In the winter he warms it up for 10 or 15 minutes first.
