I have always frowned upon it.
I guess riding on the road has always made me nervous and very untrustworthy of car people after dark.
Unfortunately this Texas heat is beating me up. Normally I wait until about 7 to head out for a ride, and ride until sunset. Tonight however it was still 102 at 6:45.
I just can't ride in that, much less feel like I can get in any good training. Instead I opted for a hour in the garage tinkering on the single speed project and some work on the trainer.
While on the trainer I thought I'd ask what everyone here thinks/does.
Do you light yourself up and hit the road?
Get up early ride the mornings?
Sweat it out on the trainer?
What heat? 100+ makes me tougher than the rest!
Find some bike trails that are car free?
I know as a runner I would head out around 9-10pm and run in the solitude of the night. It was nice, except I'd get home so late and mornings at work often sucked...
