    I love early morning rides. Best chance of seeing wildlife and best chance of not seeing anyone else!

    I'm an early riser but I like a little sun, so around or so is my fav. But I'm really not that picky, I'll ride whenever I can!

    2 - 3 hours before beer-thirty, depending on how long the ride is!

    Late morning is my favorite time around 9 - 10am.
    I don't use Strava. Don't need an application to tell me I am slow because I already know.

    I like to head out just before dusk and ride into the night. Doesn't matter what time of year it is either.

    Morning, noon, afternoon, and if I had a better set of lights, night.

    depends on the time of the year. but in general... the early morning. I like when i'm the first on the trail or path (when road biking). Especially when your coming down and riders are just getting started and you still got the whole day ahead of you. When I get home the family is just finishing breakfast and I'm pumped to start the day. Summer time I do like the dusk time... catch alot of wildlife out and get to tell the kids about them when I get home.

    For me I'll take anytime I can get but if you want to pinpoint it I'd say early morning so when I get back I still have a day to do the honey dos and I'm more energized for the day.

    Personally I really enjoy the leaving just before sunrise and riding until just before sunset.

    anytime I can fit things in, but I love being out early morning on the trails as the mist breaks to the rising sun. on the road it's usually late nights - get the kids to bed and head out. start about 9 or 930, home about midnight or later.

    My favorite time of day is early afternoon. However, lately I like getting out early on the weekends so I can finish up with some daylight left during these short days in the winter.

    i REALLY wish i could ride in the early morning, but it always seems to upset my stomach to exercise early in the morning. i dont know why that is. because of this, i generally start my rides at about 10 on the weekends. but i ride plenty in the afternoons when i get off work (around 4) on weekdays.

    I like morning rides. The light, the sounds and smells, are all unique to that time of day. Problem is, I'm NOT a morning person and have a hard time getting out for morning rides. But they are always rewarding when I push hard to make it happen.

    If it's super hot, I like night rides for cooling off. Midday rides are great when it's been cool for awhile and you catch the max heat of the day when it's in that perfect range to feel warm, but not too hot.

    Evening rides are nice when you retain the warmth of the day, but you lose the oppressive direct sun. Especially when you get to ride during that short time where you're pushing visibility without lights, and then finish the ride under lights.

    Night rides are wicked cool when the snow is falling. Every sound is deadened, except for the faint hiss of the snow itself. Night rides are also key when daytime temps are breaking 100, or even 110+.

    8:00pm-ish through dusk. Typically only see deer, trail and sunset. Occasionally see a few people wrapping up, but yeah. Peaceful time to ride!

    The crack of dawn is my favorite time. I like getting out just as the sun is coming up.

    But I'll take whatever I can get - which at this point in my life, is usually the crack of dawn on weekends, and occasionally an afternoon ride during the week.

    I prefer early morning, I like to be alone on the trail, people usually start arriving at the trail head when I'm done. And since my wife doesn't mtb, I can go ride bikepaths with her after my ride.

    It's light enough to ride by 5:15 am this time of year. 90 minute ride, back home, shower and at the office by 8:00.

    I'm usually out at the trails by 8am. I finish my ride at around 11am then grab some lunch before going home. During the Summer, it can get to 80 and 90 degrees at where I ride so its nice to get out when its cool as well.

    We do this during the summer on Sundays. It gets hot and humid here so being off the trails by 11 is perfect.

    I enjoy riding early in the morning, beautiful weather, fresh air. I want always to watch the sunset, such a panaromic view while having breakfast and then I jump on my bike and let the ride begin *-*
