Dark Side of Standard Time

With the time change this weekend, my cycling after work is done for a while. The sun sets too early now for me to get to the trail, change clothes, and get in a decent ride before darkness envelopes the trees on the trail. In fact, this will probably be the case until the time changes again in March, although I haven’t looked at the sunset times out that far to see if I might be able to get some evening rides in ahead of that.

Bummer that. I guess that means big rides on the weekends, and the odd few miles around the neighborhood after work, until it gets dark too early for even that. (By the Winter Solstice, the sun will set around here before 4.30pm.)

Unfortunately, I think that puts my goal cycling 1000 miles before the end of the year in jeopardy….
