    9 miles each way at the moment and it's all along the lovely A149 coast road, mornings is ok but afternoons can be tiring with the tourists "enjoying the view" at 20mph in a 60 but can't really complain. It's the one thing that's stopped me getting a new job. I hate being here but there's nowhere else i'm going to get this money and not have to drive 30 miles each way to the nearest city instead of working in the sticks

    6 mile round trip... I've done the 50 miles each way commute and the road warrior thing and they suck. I've lost 3 Stone since I stopped the road warrior thing and started cycling to work on a regular basis.

    You can only call it work if you actually do something. ;-)

    But yes, that's quite a distance. What do you do at the Hospital?

    20 miles (around 35-40 mins) each way. Fairly decent road once I get out of the town.

    Your home is a hospital? It suddenly all makes sense!

    Fifteen minutes leisurely amble to work in warm weather, ten minutes brisk walk in cold.

    Generally, three tracks on the iPhone is how I measure it, ymmv.

    Average is a 100 mile round trip, can be as low as 50 and as high as 200 (thanksfully not very often!) the downside of being a self employed techie with schools and businesses over a wide area!

    My round trip is 40m.

    In 1996 I used to work just past Cowley, Oxford which was a 104m round trip.

    Mental. Far too much. I used to drive home completely knackered.
