    Early am for a morning ride; however I get such great vibes and strength when I go out after dark with full lights on - I love it actually more than the daytime. If I'm not on trails or road - then I end up doing sprints with traffic if I'm in the city. However trail riding at night is just spectacular!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Being in the city, I prefer rush hour and dusk into the evening rides.

    I love going out right before sunrise, and getting back when people are still in bed. Night rides are great too, but I'm wary of mountain lions and I tend to fall asleep when it gets dark anyway.

    I like late afternoon when the sun is setting. Go and ride along the beach and it's great. Nice breeze, not too many cars on the road, beautiful view (the sunset and the women) and some sandwiches and juice in my backpack.

    How much better does it get?

    Rawr, it's a kitty!!!

    I will ride whenever it's not hot, so usually early mornings and late afternoons-evenings. When it's hot, I swim.

    My friend that's been in Arizona since 1974 has never even seen one, and he spends a ton of time in the desert. I saw one in Michigan once, and it ran once is saw me. They don't concern me much. Although, I have heard of them killing people in California.

    not during rush hour which is peak a-hole time...
    so I guess between 4am~7am, 10am~3pm and 8pm~11pm

    then again I never really like riding around night time because of my bad eye sight which is worse at night and it's rather cold near the lake at night meaning I wear more black arm and leg warmers.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    I enjoy riding to work early in the morning in the winter. The sun is yawning over the horizon and the world is covered in a crystalline dust, and it's so quiet I hear nothing but my tires rolling over frozen things. I'll drift by a field and realize I'm being stared at by two dozen eyes: deer. Then I arrive at work, awake and cheerful, while my coworkers are, at least mentally, still asleep in their warm covers at home.

    I also love riding at night. I love coasting through the dark neighborhoods in almost complete silence. The only sounds I detect are dogs barking in the distance and the faint hum of cars droning on the main roads. Through the shadows I can see dim, blue light from enormous television sets flickering in the houses, they probably wondering how anyone would want to be outside when they could be watching movies indoors, and I wondering how anyone could stand to be indoors on such a crisp, quiet evening.

    Anytime but just after dawn and just before dusk. I don't see so well with the low sun shinning into my eyes, and of course the cagers can't see properly either.

    I generally prefer early morning before the sun gets really strong as I burn easily.

    When I am not sleeping. It matters not to me.
    That is unless it is the dead of winter. Then the warmest part of the day.

    When it's cool, first thing in the morning -- so long as I don't have to pee.

    In the summer, right after a thunderstorm.
    In the fall, the crystal blue afternoons.
    In the winter - night - cuz in winter it's nearly always night by the time I can fit in a rec-ride.
    Spring is for morning.

    My body clock prefers mid afternoon. The climate dictates early morning.
