So I'm curious, who has the longest commute?

To avoid doubt, the longest commute by your shortest route - obviously anyone can make a commute longer if they choose to :)

I'll start (but expect to be overtaken quickly!) - 16 miles each way.

    Only one day a week cycling to work at the moment (getting sprog to childcare other days) but is a 77.5km roundtrip, about 24 miles each way.

    But I'll be moving soon and be closer to work so it will be shorter :cry:

    21, which is outdone by chuckcork's 24 for now. There are higher ones here I'm sure.

    mine's pretty average I think; 17km each way, so about 10-11 miles

    I drive/park&ride though so I have the opportunity to extend this to upwards of 75km each way (door to door) which of course would be bloody mindlessly stupid. I was (still am) considering to do this full trip once or twice a month when the weather is nice but I've been injured and off my bike since the sun came out a month ago so perhaps later in the summer / next spring, eh?

    When I used to work in South Molton I did a 130km round trip commute

    In winter

    Over Exmoor

    On a single speed

    But I only did that a couple of times a week due to the time it took

    My commute now is a mere 50km round trip

    22.1 miles each way, although I have been known to extend the evening leg to 35 miles on days like today :lol::lol:

  • Well, it's only 12 miles each way... But I am doing it on a scaffold-pole MTB with Nobbies, FCN of 12. I propose this gives me a commute points of 144 each way, anyone care to beat that?
