Commuting is always an option - every office has a toilet, carry wet wipes, deodorant, work clothes on and ready to go. The only limit is distance/time and being organised with kit.
Ask on here for someone to night ride with. There's 2-3 of us in our village that get out most Wednesday nights, even if it is just enough to justify the pub afterwards. There are a couple of others who work shifts etc and either ride with us or make their own arrangements
Get used to riding in bad weather, when it is too unpleasant to have a family day/morning out! The regular Friday night conversation in our house goes:
MrsMoreCash: The forecast for Sunday looks good - lets take the kids to xyz. You can ride Saturday if you want.
Or ride to a family day out - arrange to meet wherever and the other half can drive with the kids (assuming she drives)
