How much of a training benefit is commuting to work on a bike? My ride is about 10 miles each way (30 - 40 min, depending on my mood, effort, and/or wind direction and speed), so I log in 100 miles a week, + any extra miles if I do lunch time road rides, which are 20~22 miles for a little over an hour with my co-workers. So, the most I ride 100 - 140 miles a week. I know for maximum cardio benefits, I should do some longer 2+ hour rides, 3 - 4 hours would be great, but is VERY difficult to fit into my busy family life. I would like to do some Southridge races this winter, or maybe sooner, in the beginner mens 30 year old catagory.
