    Sunrise + Sunset

    Had a great Friday on the bike. Went for a ride before work at 5:30am and watched the sunrise around 7am. Then I hopped back on the bike around 7:30pm, just in time to watch the sunset. 60k in total. I was riding in the direction of the sunrise/sunset and didn't even plan it that way

    Am I the only one who thought this was a thread about Barbra Streisand songs? Only kidding, soldering iron.
    The most expensive bike in the world is still cheaper than the cheapest open heart surgery.

    I would say about 2/3 of the time I use my light are "dawn patrol" rides. Nothing like riding 15-20 miles before breakfast with half of them in the dark. Hearing and watching the forest welcome a new day is awesome.

    I did the dusk and dawn lap for my team during a 24h race about 10 years ago. My first lap was daylight when I started the 12 mile loop and night when I completed the lap. My next lap was night when I started and daylight when I finished. It was awesome. I still talk about it whenever I can.

    Sweet. There is something about riding at that time of day, things are just really quiet. This was a road ride, including some rural gravel roads...and there are so few cars out there it is great. I would love to try a 24hr ride and like you wouldn't mind those dawn and dusk segments.
