50+ers must need more sleep

How come nobody posts after 10 o'clock in this forum? Are you all in bed? Isn't anyone a nightowl? What am I supposed to do -- get a life? Or hit the sheets? C'mon, I want fresh, thought provoking, informative, insightful or at least funny posts late at night! Geesh! Is that asking too much?

Too-Loose La-Trek may not have been a cyclist in spite of his last name, but man, he had some swinging gal-pal friends!

Don't like the colour. Shows how much effort you have not been putting in.

You got it right... and by looking at your post time, you get up at the right time, too!

I don't understand. Nobody has replied to my post on video gaming. Don't you people have a life? BTW, how did Too Loose lose the Trek?

I like to ride in the AM this time of year, and I mean AM. Up by 4:40, 20 minutes for one cup of coffee, a few carbs, and check the bike, then out the door by 5AM. Leaves me 2 hours to ride and get back and get to my office well before 8 AM. I like to be asleep by 10PM at the latest.

Any later than that and I simply don't ride the next morning.

Noted the time of posting at 7.04 am. I get to work at 7.30 and try to run off a quick reply before the Bell sounds at 8 am. The bell? Time to stop playing and start digging.

Unfortunately- If I am still posting at 2am- it would not make a great deal of sense, and that is only about 8 pm to most of you. Time is now 19.49 and it is raining. Time to go down the shed and start rebuilding the bike for the weekend. Will get back around 20.00, time for a tea, and a bit of pie- check the news and see who's done what on their rides this evening - to prepare an answer for tomorrow morning.

Forget the shed. Thunder storm happening right now so time to strip off and tie the garden down. First rain for a couple of weeks.

This one could have been written by me. I have nothing to add.

OK, so I did 2+ hours this am in the cool. To prove myself an absolute fool, I took my wife to an appointment this pm, took my bike with me, and during her appointment rode another hour in 101F temp.

Smart, right!

Qwitcherwining Gary. It's 10 o clock for you and all your West Coast cronies, but some of us live elsewhere. But here in the Central Zone it's the witching hour and on the East Coast it's 1 am. Those poor Europeans have to wake up soon and the Japanese are are still at work.

Denver got over 100 and Kansas City is only at 82 degrees! But I'm sure we will get our turn.
