How often do you do it?
OK So that’s got your attention, now for the realy question:
How far is your commute to work and how often do you ride it?
Mine is 12 miles and i ride in to work probably once a month although i dont think i’ve done it since early November. I really should ride once a week if not more. That’s one of my new years revolutions although i have probably failed on it already as i haven’t riden to work yet this year! D’Oh!Posted 9 years agoJB405Member
It would be 14 miles for me each way. Something I really want to do but it is nearly all on twisty narrow country lanes, and it would only be a matter of time before I got mowed down by a crazy driver.Posted 9 years ago
My wife, understandably, is really against me cycling to work on these roads! Hence I’ve never done it!pantsonfireMember
2 miles and I do ride to work occasionally. Taking a longer 10 mile route home through the pinewoods but to be honest by the time I have put my riding shoes on unlocked the shed unlocked the bike (3 locks) put my lid on and dodged the crazy rush hour traffic I could have walked there.Posted 9 years agoRudeBoyMember
2ft. My desk is next to my bed! I can literally swivel round in my chair, and roll into bed. I do ‘commute’ to the kitchen, though; well, I used to , but now one of the wheels on the chair is borked, so it won’t roll properly, now. 🙁
My teaching job is only about 2 miles away, and 7-8 mins by bike.Posted 9 years agoGary_MMember
20 miles each way and I do it 3-5 times a week, although it’s not very often I’m in the office for a full week so on average 3 times a week. The darkness is staring to get to me now, the first 2 months are fine but January is hard. Can’t wait untill mid March so I can get in to and home from work in daylight.Posted 9 years ago
well after all you guys who commute or walk the 2 feet to work i rode in today, first time this year. I’m a bit pooped now. must make it a regular thing. Gonna try for twice this week to see if it spurs me on to carry on and then maybe i’ll get up to 4 or so times a week in the summer.Posted 9 years agoalpinMember
bit disappointed. jst checked on multimap and ita says 7 miles. i was thinking it was more like 15….
not riding it yet but will be the whole of feb. this is feb in munich with ice on the ground, really **** cold mornings and snow. fogive me if i take the train once in a while.
how long should 7 miles take at a reasonable pace?

18 miles each way. Usually 3 times a week, but I’m going for the full 5 days this week. Thankfully it’s fairly flat except a short but very painful 12% section near Styal. Quickest time so far (since November) is 1 hr and 4 minutes for the return leg. Once the weather improves, I’ll dust off the proper road bike and see if I can get it below the hour mark.Posted 9 years agoourmaninthenorthSubscriber
5 miles each way. 5 days a week, whatever the time of year.
I’d rather it was futher, TBH, as there isn’t really any fitness benefit cycling such a short distance.

Presumably on the way out of Wilmslow on the Styal road? That’s only a tiddler – just take a run up.Posted 9 years ago
