I do a 13km ride each way to uni 4 times a week. Wareemba to Surry Hills.
How long is your daily commute and where does it start/end?
Rhodes to Sydney CBD days a week, about 18 to 19kms each way depending on route.
Some days I'll hit up training in SOP, or go to work via Bondi for hills.
I do about 60 km per day, I don't go the direct route. Not every day ~2-3 times per week.
The biggest commute I ever heard of was a former National level rider, who was going from the Southern Highlands to western Sydney, return trip, about 240 km per day. He didn't do it every day, but he did it regularly.
that's pretty big.
I used to do 55km each way (110km day) twice a week but I've been particularly lazy lately...
2010 BMC SLC01
I do 45 k's each way and do it for 4 days a week normally, the minimum is 3 days a week
takes me roughly an hour and half each way, give or take a few minutes
am up in the Hunter region and ride into Newcastle
24km each way. Pretty much every day.
"My bicycle masters boardwalk and quagmire with aplomb. Those that doubt me... suck THUMB by choice."
Moore Park -> Sydney Olympic Park around 3-4 times a week for work. About 19km each way. Takes around 35-40minutes.
Doonside to Blacktown nearly every work day - 9km each way - I do wish it was further and sometimes make it further with a long detour if time allows.
I do try to ride everywhere else I go and make trips in the car the exception not the rule.
Not fast, no style, but still get there.
Used to be 60km a day round trip with hills, but have changed roles for a period of time and point-to-point is about 38km.
I'm looking for options to lengthen the route with hill repeats etc, have managed to get it up to 25km with soem hill repeats.
Don't ride every day, I need to leave some in the tank for longer weekend training rides.

80km round trip from Hills area to Glebe using Victoria Rd. Loving the new painted bus / bike lanes !!!
Usually twice a week.
These days it is about a 150m round trip and I don't usually ride. Sometimes I get the bike out and ride around the campus just for fun.
70km round trip per day. At least 3 to 4 times a week.

60k round trip, once a week or twice if I can organise for that. East Hills to Sydney CBD. Sometimes do LACC laps in the morning instead.
2010 Charge Plug, 2011 Genesis Equilibrium 20, 2012 Giant TCR Advanced SL
Work/Uni - same thing!
I have now decided the round trip in winter will be just under 36KM, in summer I do about 37.5KM. Different route as I use more of the bike path in winter when it is dark. I could do it in 25KM but take a longer route, this serves me well if I'm running late as I can just go direct instead.
Riding: Cannondale Quick Speed 2
17km both ways to work. Twice to three times a week
2012 Avanti Giro 3
2003 GT Palomar
It varies as I drop and add extra train legs and do a fair bit of wandering as the mood takes me.
However I do keep it all on the trip meter which tells me that from start of year to this morning I have done 2,079km.
So, for this year, a very satisfying 20km a day seven days a week I usually do not do much or any on Saturday so maybe 23.5km a riding day.
I continue riding every work day without fail all year come rain or shine though the distances will come down a fair bit for about five months of winter.
Unicyclist's don't need a training wheel
Out and back on M7C.
Problem with acronyms is one acronym can have several meanings.. so I joined USA, Unique Standard Acronyms which is enforcing one acronym=one meaning.... powerful group, I saw Obama is president...
me and my singlespeed have only done 270km..
The trick is to book a trip on the indian pacific and then ride up and down the aisle for an hour or two. You get to cover several hundred kms at an average speed of, say, 100kph! Take some rollers and do the whole distance and then you can say you rode to Adelaide or Kalgoorlie or whatever.
Unicyclist's don't need a training wheel
the ride to work is 15km each way. i only tend to ride once a week though.
About 9.8km door to lockers most days, or 1.2km to the train station if my knees are playing up..

I ride 10km each way 3 times a week from Chatswood to Macquarie uni
I ride three days a week, 12-13Km each way, All on road between Marrickville and King St Wharf, I could do it in about 9, but I prefer to take the safer route up through Lilyfield and Pyrmont rather than the hellstorm that is King St and riding through the city.
Hoping to do four days a week, but I think I need a different seat, I'm pretty 198cm tall and solidly built, so the narrow seat isn't doing me any favours.
90 ks round trip 3 or 4 times a week.Penrith to Camden & back again after ripping people off & overcharging for repairs all day working in a bike shop.Dont need to train anymore just ride to & from work.
Good to see you using a computer bandito!
