Do you sleep in on Saturday?

What the heck is wrong with you? You miss the best part of the day.I rode out of my driveway at 7:00 this morning and got back at 9:30. Since some of you lazy bums were in the bed, I'll show you what you missed.
On a side note,This ride was done on a 7" "freeride" bike. Thats for all you asking "will this bike work for me".I have it set up to be my do it all bike.

Foggy morning...


Things are getting better.......


Now we're getting to the good stuff......


that gets us to here....


Grassy creek falls......


High falls......

Nice pics. I am an early bird and like to be the 1st one on the trails. By 10:00 I usually finished my morning ride and eaten breakfast afterwards.

Life is too short to sleep in.

I was on the bike at 6:30 AM. Absolutely serene this morning. Still air, clear skies, green countryside. Very similar to your pics minus the fog. I got in 40 miles and was home a little after 8:30. I am an early AM rider all year long, even in the winter. I've ridden over 25,000 miles in the last 3 + years and probably 200 of them were after 9AM.

Dawn is the absolute best time to ride.

Took this on a early ride a few weeks ago. This is on a one-way singletrack loop here in VA. Getting uphill is tough on this one.

You can afford to get up that early at your age! Eat supper at 4pm and in bed by 7pm...I'd expect you to be out riding even earlier!
