Insanely long bike commute

I think most CBB readers know that my commute is “multi-modal.” That means I ride a bus, a train and then my bike to work.

Today, I missed my bus. Rather than wait 15 minutes for the next bus, I decided to bike the entire distance to work.

For me, the entire distance is 44 miles. This includes climbing from elevation 500 feet (at my home) up to 1,900 feet (the summit of the Santa Cruz Mountains on Mountain Charlie Road) before dropping back down to 650 feet at 35 mph on hairpin turns.

It’s a fun ride, but it took me 3 hours. That’s too long for an everyday commute.

What’s your longest bike commute?

Have a good weekend, all!
