    6 am, who's up for a ride?

    Me...well, after one more cup of coffee. I rode up a stone bluff over the ocean last evening.
    0 -say 50 foot cliff, one rock. Never did it during the day -no idea why I tried it in the dark.

    I'm off to go have a look @ it in daylight and give'er again.
    'Yawn.'

    Later.

    O.K..shoes and coat are on, tough love biking.
    Hit the road before the traffic starts.

    It's o.k if you start a bit late, just get a ride in today!

    I normally ride at 6:00 am before work. Its tough getting going but once the air hits your face and you turn the crank a few times all is well. If I miss that ride I feel bad all day. Really clears my head (in more than one way he he )

    I should try making my rides at odd hours. I hate the roads here, the drivers are horrible and there is practicly no shoulder. 6AM out riding is too early for me but i wonder if during the summer mid day would be better. I figure then most people are at work

    I ride at this time every day. It is the best time of the day. Very quiet and peaceful. Very little traffic.

    Just got back, I got rained out.
    At one point I was at a harbour and off the dock I saw a rockhopper (bike, not penguin) under about 4 feet of water.
    Looked old so I'm not going back to fish it out.

    I'm usually on the road by 6:30 AM and I couldn't think of a better time to be out. Well 2:00 AM is pretty nice too.

    During the summer I start riding at 4:00 to beat the heat. It is awesome because all the guys with airconditioned cars sleep in so it is just me and the waking desert usually.
    Sunrise saturday,
    I was biking the backroads,
    lost in the moment.

    I hit the road between 2:00am and 3:00 am.It's a blast at night on rural roads. I just have to keep a look out for DUI drivers at that time of night.

    Hidden bouns I get off work at 1:00pm and have the whole afternoon to ride.


    On the weekends. I'm with you 6:00am works for me.

    I've been doing this for a month or so now. I'm out the door at 6 to do a 20 mile loop. Home by 7:15, warm a couple of bottles for the twins, change a couple of diapers and hit the shower. Into my office clothes and back out the door at 10 to 8 for my easy 4-mile commute to work.

    This way I get in 28 miles a day and let Mrs. Caloso have a little bit of a sleep-in. Everybody's happy.

    My morning ride (commute) begins between 5:30 and 5:40, depending on whether I hit the snooze alarm or not.
