Def a ploy to get out of cooking supper
Seriously it is a long commute, I do 17 miles one way some days, which is a fairly long commute, fortunately due to the early start/early finish time on that particular shift I arrive home at a fairly 'normal' time ie 5pm or there abouts.
On top of a long day finishing at 5pm i get home at around 6.30-7pm leaving not much of the evening left, esp if up for the early commute next day.
When on 'afternoons' I employ park and ride tactics and have a useful place where I can leave the car safely (so far).
So it might be a case to scout the area about 10 miles from place of work and find a suitable venue. I am lucky this road has been turned into a no thru road and only has houses on one side of it, so I park across the road so I cannot be accused of parking in someone's 'spot'.
To ride it daily would be very tiring, if park and ride is not an option, then perhaps once or twice a week to start with and see how it goes.
