My Happy Hour weeknight ride group has folded up for the year, but my goal is to ride one evening a week after work through the winter. Tonight will be the last night I start in daylight, but the lights came on by the end of the ride.


Long shadows before tonight's 6 pm sunset.

And you will loose an hour this weekend when daylight savings time ends. I ride in the mornings so I at least get a little reprieve.

About 7 hours ago on a trail a couple miles above my house. Got back from the ride in time to watch the Seahawks beat the Vikings.

Got laid this morning, too.

Pretty good day, in all.
