In California, that's a reasonable commute length. Not great, but not bad.

I have to work my way back up to 10 miles.
The joy of busy metropolitan areas, I guess... That's one nice thing about western Canada ... We do have a few reasonable size cities (Calgary area is about 1 million now) but they're quite far apart. No need for a huge freeway system like in California.

I do a lot of fast (17+ mph average) bike riding and I have to eat relatively large amounts of carbs (75+ g/hr) on long rides or I will bonk.

I can eat food I would otherwise never eat, big chocolate chip cookies, macaroni/potato salad, sub sandwiches. I don't need to even take any Prandin on those long ride days and my BG can go as low as 80.

On rest days I may eat a total of 75g carb all day.

I wish bike season lasted longer here in Seattle, I'm a weather wimp and don't go out in the rain.
