John EARLYnger

Wow-its 10pm and i am getting up to ride in 7.5 hours. Whos to blame for ths nuttiness? Riding at 6 to 6:30am, why its pure Insanity!!! Or is it??

Look at all these benefits if youve got family or just things to do! First, theres the lack of traffic. Also, if you wake up and its pouring, well you go back to sleep and ride later. Its like a treat. Next, your family just loves the fact that your home at 5pm and not leaving again for 2 to 3 hours, then getting home, snarfing down food for an hour and cleaning up till babies in bed.

In the summer its much cooler (if not less humid like this week) and you dont usually get baked in the sun. Leave the suntan lotion in its bottle. I like this last benefit (but theres more-just keeping this one short) if your racing the next day your body gets an extra 12 hours to recover and you can use the evening to do core exercises and some stretching.

So I thank John for getting me started on this. Its been all good. Now to get commuting again....

face it, John's a sick puppy and he has brought you over to the "dark side"....actually, if I lived closer, I'd be at those early rides for some of the same reasons!
