N/E Bristol to S Bath (21 miles) takes up to an hour each way, but then I quite like driving (my car's a nice place to be in) as long as there isn't too much waiting in gridlocked traffic jams (which is just boring).

I am an unusual Network Manager I think.
I work 3 days per week at a school 28miles away. I take 1.5 to 2 hours door to door each way involves a 2 mile Cycle to the Station then train into Birmingham then a 2nd local train out to the school. About once every 2 weeks I drive just for variety and I can do some shopping on the way home. I go off peak which saves a lot of money but the ticket still costs £10:20 per day. The train fare has doubled in 5 years. I start late 11am and finish late 6:30 to 7pm which I find works better with I.T support when everyone is off the system and can get into classrooms easier. I can put up with it part time. I also do a lot of work from home via VPN link when everyone is off the system so the school has had no downtime in the last 3 years. You cant beat public transport for a rolling show of entertainment.

Work this one out then.........
Door to door it takes 1 hour 20 to get to work but 4 mins to get home. With a very smug look on my face - I go to the gym on the way in!!!
