    4.1 miles both ways and loved it. Felt energized and awake when I got to work. Decided I want to start doing the ride more regularly. Instead of 8 minutes in my truck, I rode the bike for 24 minutes.

    Was just curious anyone else who gave it a try.

    I walked to work...but I'm at a training base right now- So I walk every where.

    I'm getting a bike when I get home to ride to work every day- It's about 2 miles even to get to my office from my house.

    In 2009 I cycled to work for four months straight. It's 5 miles one way for me. I don't do it anymore though. It's too scary. Just three days ago a cyclist was run over on my old commuting route. He lived with very serious injuries. :(

    I did not know about the day. I only work about a mile from home, so I could have. I wouldn't have though. I did notice last night while I was standing in the garage thinking about cleaning it. My 2 bikes, have all tires flat. That shows you how much I ride.
