2011 Bianchi Infinito, 2010 Surly Long Haul Trucker
Because of work and the cosmos being what it is, I've done most of my riding in the dark. Don't get me wrong, I love to ride, and I've typically been a night owl. Still, I've reached a point where it just sucks to go out at 7:00pm or so and ride in the dark not to mention cold. It's like riding through a garden hose. I have a great HID light, but it ain't the sun. I'm also finding that I want to go to bed earlier in the night and get up earlier, because I'm sleeping like a baby after getting in from a ride and showering.
I see that "spring forward" isn't until the first Sunday in April. It can't get here fast enough. Ugh.

I think I've been suffering from S.A.D. and am really looking foward to warm sunny days. I sit in a gloomy office with the only window behind me at the other side of the room. My only riding has been commuting. It seems like most Saturdays and/or Sundays lately have been rainy day. Its raining right now.
So I am definitely looking forward to longer, warmer, and drier days!
When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking. — Arthur Conan Doyle
So much sunshine here in Tampa, I am looking for shade. Went to the Florida State Fair yesterday and got cooked. Wish you all were here to keep paying my state tax for me. Come on down!! And bring your wallet too.
