How many here bike commute? [View all]

I just thought I'd ask because I recently started bike commuting because the drive - no matter the route or mode of transportation involved - is an hour. Which is maddening because the distance is only a paltry 8 + miles - yet it takes for ever!!! If I'm going to have to spend that time commuting, I may as well get some exercise in the process.

So, who else bike commutes besides myself?

Thanks in advance.
