    Who has the longest commute to work?

    For me its only 10.8 miles one way. So nothing major here but I wondered who's putting in serious miles here.

    Mine is 16.5 miles the direct route, which I take in the mornings and it takes 55 minutes avg. Going home I usually take the back roads, about 21 miles and more hills. So usually a 38 mile round trip. I've been doing this ride 2 times a week the past few years, but this year it's been 4-5 times a week. Been a great spring and summer weather wise in central PA.

    My direct commute is 14.5 miles each way, which I do 3-5 times a week. Weather has been great in northeast ohio for commuting this summer as well.

    Try a search of threads. This topic has been covered several times.

    I'm 22.5 miles each way. Throw in running some errands for/durring work and my day is 50 miles. I can do the trip in in less than an hour (its slightly downhill overall) and the trip home is usually 1:05.*


    *under minimal wind conditions.

    My current commute is 11 miles each way that I ride a few times a week usually. I was in Texas for work last spring and had a 17.2 mile each way commute that I made 2-3 times a week.

    Mine is 33 miles round trip. I only do it 2-3 times a week though. You guys who do it every day are admirable.

    I'm not in the running for longest commute... but I might win the shortest commute award. My commute to work is 0.38 miles. My commute to class is about 5.4 miles each way though.

    30 miles, one way. Most days I ride ~10 miles one way and car pool in from there. I try to do the whole way at least once a week, depending on weather, etc.
    Oh noes. I'm going to drink the Kool-Aid.

    I could make it much longer than what it is at 8.5 miles each way, and often times I will on the ride home to stretch it out to a 20 mile ride or so. Instead of making it longer on the way in, I will often just ride a bit harder and faster if possible to make up for the lack of distance.
    The pedals turn, not just the left one, but the right one too.

    I can make mine about 50 miles round trip depending on the route. I live outside Boston and can also trim it shorter to a minimum 6 miles round trip with the ferry or commuter rail - depending on weather.

    It' awesome to have such a range of options! I even have an option with some singletrack!

    This is going to be changing - on the search for a new place. Going to look at a place tomorrow - if we end up there, it will be a ~16 mile trip, one way. That will be an everyday ride if it happens.

    Mine is 8 miles the direct way - all on very well maintained and busy dual / triple carriage way roads - that's road bike territory so that's what I ride. I can do it in under 30mins if I get lucky with the stop lights. it is 9.5 miles on the way home as I take a slightly different route to avoid a couple of nasty right hand turns.
    If I take one of my mountain bikes I take cycle tracks on the way in which is 12 miles and do a 30 to 35 mile ride home of which about 15 miles is single track. i do this a couple of times a week.
