  1. Thought I'd ask people just how far they go to get to work (One way trip)

    The last option should read 80km +

  2. I live 20 minutes' walk from my current work site.

    Course, I still ride, which is probably not great for the bike as it doesn't get a chance to warm right up. But as I'm not doing much more than straight line commuting at the moment I can actually feel my skills starting to atrophy.

    It's distressing. Only thing I get to work on is a bit of throttle control when I pull wheelies.

    I must get out more on the weekends.

  5. Mines 65 kms each way, Mt Martha to the CBD.

    1hr or so is still faster than a car by 1/2 hour.

  6. Office is 24k's door to door if I'm not flying, then it's 15k's more to the airport. It usually takes about 1/3 longer if I go by car.

  9. :shock: I miss the days when I used to work <8km's from work... only thing I like about travelling 40km's each way is that I get to ride :grin:

    It's a pain travelling 40km's on the Monash so doesn't matter how bad the weather is I'll ride to work every day :wink:

  13. Used to be 90k's each way, that sucked. Now it's just over 60 because I was moved to a different campus. It used to cost me $20 a day ($100/week) in fuel in my Magna, now on the bike it's about $16 a week (I was also changed from working 5 days a week to only 4, 2 less trips a week). I thought I had won lotto with all the extra money I had.

    On the Monash, in the cage = :cry:

  15. I had to go the 5km option. I'm not working ATM but my last job was 2.4km from work :grin: Hopefully I will be working for an agency that I applied with and then I will be working wherever they send me :shock:

    Maybe we should do another poll that says "shortest commute to work"... I'm sure you'd win it :eek:

  17. 26km door to door if I go via Lysterfield Rd, but coming home in the summertime can closer to 80-100km,

    Wantirna - Emerald (sometimes via Mt Dandenong) - Gembrook - Pakenham - Narre North...... and not a freeway in site ... sucks don't it :wink:

  18. work is 45 mins. return (brighton --> port melbourne and back) not a bad ride, the st kilda foreshore is always nice no matter the season.

    uni in berwick is 90 mins. return.. shitty boring ride on north road and the monash :? i'm doing one subject in caulfield next semester though! fun ride, only 15-20 minutes away and more bikes there, more fun campus too.

    (i work in time not km's.)
