I was talking to a friend of mine online and he said that his regular commute was ten miles back and forth. Mine is only 2 miles but ten seems to much. What the average length of your commute until you just take your car?

It is 50 mi for me to just about anything, I don't think 10 miles each way would be too bad. I did work in Willows CA for a while and lived 16mi away, used to commute when weather permitted, heat was the biggest issue, over 100 for weeks at a time, but I liked the ridin, it was flat as a board though, not even a rise.

Car-free rider here, so if it's outside my 'reasonable distance', I say, "I don't need to GO there."

I have multiple routes to commute, anywhere from the straight-in 2 miles I use in the dead of winter to a 9-miler when I feel a little froggy. I haven't done as much 'fun riding' this year, but when i do, it's usually 15-20 miles.

For 10 miles or less, I'm generally cranking about 13+ mph; over that, it drops to about 11. ( I ride MTB, btw)

Once a year, my buddy and I do the entire local MUP, presently 46 miles RT. Personal best was 3 hrs, 38 min for the whole thing.
