Daylight Savings

As msincredible reminded us in the "Ok what did you buy" thread, this Sunday, it is time to spring forward. This means there is more light ... or does that mean less light? What better reason to do another BF ride ... ok, I know I'm doing my birthday ride on Saturday, but I need to get some riding in.

Anyone up for a Daylight Savings ride? I'll let someone else step up to the plate and suggest.

I'm just the instigator, that's all ...

Would this be a ride that straddles the actual time change? Everyone straps on all of their lighting equipment, and goes for a midnight ride kind of thing? That'd be awesome.

Spring forward, so we'll be gaining an hour of sunlight. Instead of being 6pm at sunset it will be 7pm. Hell yeah, it's about time.

That'd be interesting. I need to get more use out of my Dinottes. Middle of the night ride when the kids are asleep is totally doable.

Stop using your head. Thinking hurts.

If you ride after work, you're gaining an hour of light. If, like me, you ride before work, you're losing an hour.
