How far do you drive to your affiliate?

How far is your affiliate from you and how often do you make the trek?

The closest affiliate to me is 45 minutes away. 90 minutes there and back, 3-5 times a week...

I OWN my affiliate and it is 30 min each way. More if it's peak traffic time

Re: How far do you drive to your affiliate?

About 5 miles from my house. Usually a 10-15 minute drive, that I make three times per week.

There's also another affiliate about 3.5 miles from my house.

Re: How far do you drive to your affiliate?

It's about 3 miles and I make it there in 5 minutes. Yes, I know, I am truly blessed. Don't think that I'm not appreciative. Before that, 25 minutes but I didn't go often because of the expense. I trained alone, in my garage for about a year before the affiliate opened.

Since it opened in May, I go about 5 days a week.

Joffray, there's not one in Jackson? Where is it then?

My affiliate is about 2 minutes from my house. Before it opened though the closest affiliate was 30 minutes.

Re: How far do you drive to your affiliate?

27 miles, 36 minutes each way.

The problem is I work in the complete other direction. So when I go to work, then gym, then home I drive about 100 miles in a day. Totally worth it though.

Re: How far do you drive to your affiliate?

the first affiliate was about 30+ minutes on bike, probably 15 by car due to traffic. slight uphill slowed bike ride and was annoying. that affiliate is now about 2 miles away (I should probably just go there because of convenience and cost).

the second affiliate I looked at in Sac was 35 minutes away by car but I was taking the light rail and bus so figure longer than that.

the next one was about 25-30 minutes by bike but that was street so it probably would only be 10-15 minutes by car because of traffic.

the last one is 20 miles away so think 40 minutes by car, maybe 45 because it's in the boonies. I could ride there and it'd be an hour plus or maybe an hour by bus and bike (express bus goes there but requires 4mi bike ride to there and then 4 more to the box).

there's another one now that is roughly 3 miles away, I think. I haven't checked into it but will in time.
