I hate that it's so early now. Right when it starts getting light at the start of my rides I'm plunged back into another month of darkness.

Heck, I don't mind riding to work in the dark at all. But once the sun goes down I think the day is over.
I LOVE daylight Savings time. It's like getting MORE time, not less. You can actually do stuff after work!

I hate day light savings. After two decades in the (cough, cough) Sacramento Valley, I much prefer riding in the morning before the commuters put all that crud into the air. We would do better from a public health standpoint to do reverse daylight savings (daylight spending?) and have more sunlight in the early A.M. and less in the late P.M. That way, those who want to exercise can breathe deeply before the smog gets going.

Oh well, at least there are great, inexpensive, super-bright lights available for night riding. I'll just keep being a UFO.

Yeah, I guess I didn't think about the opposite side of the spectrum. Sorry to all you dawn-breaking riders!

With a two and four year old in the house, morning rides are easier to pull off, with a long commute or a ride before the kids are up. Also, now I get to hear the kids whining about going to bed while it's still light out. Daylight's Saving's Time has it out for me.
