It would be a 28 mile total (14 one way).

I'll need to find a suitable commuter bike but the cool
thing is my workplace installed showers, a locker room
and keycard access for bike commuting. Kind of cool of
them.

Shortest round trip is just under 6 miles. For the last year I average 30 miles a day during the week ........ sometimes we get a century in during a nice weekday.

I figure Miss M gets in 3-5 miles a weekday more than I do.

Is it commuting? I don't know. It is riding.
5.4 to work, 9.6 to 27 home ...Humma Hah

... I never have much time in the AM, am not a morning person, so I go straight to work. Coming home, I almost always seek a longer route. I have a convenient and pleasant 27-miler available if I have time, and could stretch that if so inclined.
About 8 miles each way. About 3 days/week. (nm)djg
