    I thought mine would be the shortest but I've been beat.

    1.5 miles a day each way except the ride home usually includes
    a trip around the block which is another ten or so.

    I commute 180 round trip from Dover DE to Columbia MD at least twice a week, long day but for the most part a nice ride. The Bay Bridge can tighten you up on a windy morning

    Mine is exactly 22.375 feet to the coffee pot.

    Medical retirement many moons ago...but still six feet over instead of six feet under.

    Cool Depends...

    ...and sometimes you need 'em. My commute from my house in suburban Chicago to the Loop, about 16 miles, can easily take an hour and a half, to an hour 45.....or, once-in-awhile, twenty minutes. But mostly 40 minutes to an hour and a half. Or sometimes an hour, or an hour ten. Sometimes I practice slow riding technique, and sometimes the cars I've just passed illegally splitting lanes (IK IK, but I used to live in CA), honk furiously behind me, long after I've moved down the road and into one of the many open spaces in front of texters, phone talkers, newspaper-readers, pantyhose-puter-oners and dreamers.

    140 miles round trip

    I was making a ride on the slab around Chicago 70 miles, each way, each day. Thankfully those days are over.

    I'm only running 26 miles each way, but it is the best part of my day!

    Wow, not much activity on this thread but my ride (round trip) is 84 miles. First seven leaving the house is rural, then slab, and then one mile off of the slab in city traffic to the office. (reverse for the ride home :-) )

    42 miles roundtrip

    42 miles round-trip when I get to ride. I got to ride to work one week in January, which is very rare here. Back to snow and ice for now.

    54 miles roundtrip; I ride year around sans snow/ice, when my heated gear is not working and it's below 35. Looking forward to better weather and more seat time soon!
