31km each way from Melba in the NW of Canberra, all the way to Tuggeranong Office Park on the Southern tip of Canberra. Mondays it's a little further, as I'm required to go through the City on my morning commute. I choose a route which is about 25% road, 75% bike paths. I'm still adjusting to the extra distance, after changing jobs in early January.

Since I moved, my commute is only 8km each way now. Pretty straight forward. Creek road to Logan road down to Greenslopes Hospital. I start work very early so there is very little traffic, and finish work early so I don't have to deal with peak hour traffic.

I"m in Maryborough QLD, and I do 5km each way five days aweek. Not worth using a car.

I think your tapatalk is broken...

22 km for me, but I catch the train home because people drive like crap on the way home from work and I have better things to do of an evening :)

39km each way for me, Ipswich to Fortitude Valley. Not quite up to doing both ways regularly, going to start riding in one day, back the next for a while.

24 km each way into Melbourne and back. Train in and riding home twice a week while I recover from a knee operation, did manage in and out 3 times in a week a month or so ago but it caused issues with my still recovering knee and I had to have 2 weeks of the bike to recover, lesson learnt.
2016 totals last time I checked 1136km, 18718M elevation, 60 hrs, 51 rides

That's reassuring to hear. Currently I commute between 10-15km each way 3-4 days a week but will be moving house so that it'll be 17-40km each way. I was a little worried, but I guess it'll just take time to build up.

I now added distance to my commute each way as I got faster and faster :) sometime between 10 and 15 Km's and most so far have added 70

About 7 kilometres each way, fairly flat and the majority using the Bourke Street Cycleway. I'm lucky I guess :)
