There are very few things in this world that make me quite as happy as getting out of work in the afternoon and going for a ride in daylight. Such a simple, stupid thing - the clocks turning ahead one hour - and yet, it can instantly change the face of the work week for me. And when you add 75 degree temps in mid-March ... well, something about pigs and excrement comes to mind.
|Tonight was indistinguishable from a typical mid-May day|
It actually worked out pretty well, though. I felt good after a while and got faster as I went. So what started out as just a ride ultimately did turn into some training in the end. Especially in the last half hour or so, when I was racing the sunset to get in a few more miles without needing a light.
|After 7 pm and still no need for lights|
|The last section of the ride tonight ...|
I freakin' love this time of year!
