    What will you miss about summer?

    Even though it was dry and ungodly hot, I will miss summer - especially the whole "casualness" of it. I can count on one hand the number of times I wore shoes this summer (except for cycling shoes). Just an old pair of sandals, if anything. Light summerfare dinners on the patio with white wine, fireflies, etc... - "...and the living is easy."

    Also, all the sweating I did on rides helped me shed 14 pounds - feel fitter than ever.

    What will you miss?

    Oh, right. I've seen your threads. Sorry about that, guy. Heartbreak does suck and it may not help much now, but I guarantee you won't miss her by next summer. Smile, Mister. Life is better than you think!

    The fact that it's actually gone. If I were still in FL, we'd have about 2 more months of hot weather still.

    Leaving the patio door open. Winter consists of - open door throw dog's ball, close door. 30sec to 5min later, hear bark, open door let dog in. Repeat until insane.

    Going outside without 20min of preparatory bundling in clothes. All those extra layers, boots..

    Now I'm depressed - going to wallow for a while.

    Longer days. It sucks, I hate how fast the sun sets now, and I complain about it every year. No more rides at 7pm, and if I want a long ride on a workday, I gotta get up so much earlier so I can get in and get out early.

    Don't mind the cold, actually I welcome it; I'm not a big fan of the heat, and humidity.

    How far up there are you? We went to Quebec around the summer solstice. I really liked that.

    Not have to get up at 5:45 to get my son ready for school. I missed the extra 45 minutes of sleep.

    2. lots of daylight
    3. womens summer clothing...or lack thereof.
    "Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey

    Summers in general, not much (This specific summer, though, yeah, lots). I like cool/cold weather, and I like riding in the dark.

    Yeah, okay, there's that. But the ones that look good in summer clothing look good in winter clothing as well. There's just more left to the imagination.

    It seems like a lot of people are afraid to ride in the dark.
    What's up with that?

    I love night rides!
