Yesterday was my first full commute dark to dark. I no likey.
(~85 miles ~5000' of climbing)
(Blinkies, headlights, reflective vest and all)
In the morning everything is great. Traffic was low, I felt fresh. No problem.
Then I was warped to Psycho-ville.
On the way home it sucked. Traffic was real heavy when I got to Crowders Mountain. It was dark and no one wanted to pass because of it. And when they did, it was usually inches from me. People were honking, reving their engines, and just actin' a fool. It was brutal on the nerves. Nothing like this happened when I had plenty of daylight hours in the summer. What, do people turn in to idiots after they set their clocks back? God!
