    10 miles each way....daily cycle commute. Keeps me fit and means I only spend about £40 every 6 weeks on petrol, as the car is only used at weekends

    Can't understand why people sit in traffic burning fuel for <4 mile journeys!

    About 5mins in the car, although when its bin day the traffic (bin wagon's) can make it upto 10 mins. Might use the bike during the holidays though but its all up hill to work and all down hill on the way home. Would prob talk about 10 mins on the bike and takes about 15 to walk.

    30 miles door to door, around 1hr 20 most mornings, and between 1 or 2 hours depending on when I leave, it varies wildly.
    Very different to my previous 2 mile, 5 minute commute! Thankfully I should be moving closer in July

    3 minute walk.
    I'm a little more extreme than mats and it takes about 45 seconds to cycle (by the time she's safely locked away!)
    About 350 metres looking at Google Maps...

    50MPH for an hour = 50 miles... It takes me 40 mins to do 12 miles, and the speed limit of 70 doesn't help one iota! It is all down to all the other traffic that is in my way!

    I travel 10 miles by Motorbike from Dartmoor down into Plymouth.
    Takes about 25 minutes on a good day, 35 on a bad one.
    It's nice on sunny days, and just about bearable on wet ones.

    I hope that helps!

    I live 50 miles from work. I spend 2-3 hours a day driving, depending on traffic.

    Journey to work

    I cycle every day. One of the schools is 10 minutes away, the other is 20. It's a bit of a pain but I like the exercise.
