    List all the places you commute to

    Commute usually implies riding to work, but what are some other places you commute to besides work with some frequency?

    In the last few months, I've found it very convenient to go shopping to various places that are near my regular bike routes in town. Mostly grocery shopping a couple times a month, but also some trips to Home Depot, ACE Hardware, and I even went to Autozone to buy a new alternator for my truck.

    I also go the public library on my bike once in a while to catch up on favorite periodicals. When I realized all my different commuting destinations, I wanted to see all the other places others around here go to on their bikes. Your turn.

    work, shopping, other cities for bike parts.

    sorry, sounds more glib than I intended when reading it days later... just such an odd question, but I commute everywhere on my bike.
    absolutely everywhere and absolutely every day, I don't even have a licence for/or own a car.
    I could count on my hands the amount of times I've had to use public transit in the last year.
    same the year before that.

    To vote.
    To friends.
    To get my hair cut.
    To pick up my car at the shop.
    To the library,
    To training/meeting off-site.

    Most of these are more of occasional detours on my work commute or lunch errands. I rarely am motivated to do weekend errands by bike after bikecommuting during the week.

    Similarly, here in Manhattan that would typically involve trips to the following:

    Office
    Post office/UPS
    Farmers' market/groceries
    Barber
    Doctors
    Liquor store

    Mind you, I have a car - but I bicycle to the garage, too. Such is life in Manhattan.

    I commute to ride, as far as 15-20 miles to the trailhead, as well as to work, bar and everywhere else.

    Grocery Store.
    Church.
    Foster Care Classes.

    That's it so far that I can think of...but it's been over 1,200 miles in about 3.5 months worth of riding.
