30 km one way to work. Takes me a little under 20 mins in the morning, based on weather conditions. But during winter when the roads get really icy, my commute goes up to over 30 min. On top of that you have the possibility of hitting a deer or moose on the way with no traction on icy roads.

Above 40 kms one way [ Muvattupuzha to Cochin ]. It takes around 1 hour in the morning as well as at night, on the way back.
So more than 80 kms a day total, on my Unicorn

I normally take less than 2 minutes each way. Sometimes if I am stuck behind a truck climbing the incline at 5kmph, it does stretch to 3-4 minutes.

You're one lucky dude, aren't you? The time it takes you to commute from home -> work is the same time it takes me to cross only the 1st junction (of atleast 25!!).

I just have to travel around 7-8 Km from my home to office, but it takes around 20-25 minutes because of errant Bikers & Cyclelist. Still there is less road sense on pune streets.
