    5.40 this morning and 5.03 yesterday. I love the peace and quiet, plus I suffer from insomnia so it's not exactly difficult to just get up and out.

    Earlier in the winter, when there's less daylight...........

    Another point: Earlier is cooler, and no faffing with suncream.

    Usually about 0930 because walking Mini D to school, falls to me, but weekends sometimes 0400ish.

    I like to ride after 7pm, a bit cooler as the sun is going down, traffic not too heavy on the country lanes.

    I have a flexible work pattern and like getting out before 6 during the week. I have a 33-35 mile loop I do then home for breakfast, shower and off to work. Even winter turbo is usually 6am, whereas most people seem to do turbo sessions in the evening.

    For work, 0530. I try for 7am for my longer rides to miss traffic and not interfere with the day too much, but lately that has slipped a bit.

    Quite like a lie in at the weekend. Got out for a 116km ride on Saturday ay 11.30am. Week or two before started an 80km ride at 4.30pm due to family stuff in the morning. Club rides start at 9am so I would be out about 8.15 which is early for me. What I like about this time of year are the lovely long evenings - no need to get out early it is light until 10pm at the moment. See riders out whatever the time.

    What time do you lot go to bed?
