Our small group that normally rides on Tuesday and Thursday nights have gradually moved up the start time of our ride from 6 pm to 5 pm-plus shortened the distance from 40 miles to 25 miles the past few weeks. How quickly we start losing daylight after work (I don't want to hear it from retired riders!!).
We acknowledged tonight that we were fighting a losing battle and only had one or two night left before the hour switches back to Standard time. I suspect I did more of the T/T rides this year an ever which meant playing less golf.
Tonight was a perfect night to ride except for the quick blanket of darkness. Temps in the 70's and little to no wind. There were just two of us but we moved along like a magnificient machine. I guess that makes up somewhat for all the 90-100 degree afternoons we had this summer.
We did agree to touch base if we ever had the opportunity to trade some work hours in the afternoon for a bike ride.
