    Time change is happening this weekend. Ready?

    Daylight saving time 2019 in California began at 2:00 AM on Sunday, March 10
    and ends at 2:00 AM on Sunday, November 3

    We ready for this? It seemed like such a long time ago when TNGR paused for the season.

    What you gonna do as it gets dark?
    - ride at night (where)
    - gym
    - stationary, peloton
    - ride in the morning
    - taper and bulk up

    Will be a long winter in the garage on the trainer. I don't mind riding on the trainer but now that its getting colder its getting harder stay motivated to get out of bed and grind out that morning session, so perhaps the time change could help there.

    I only really have one goal for the winter and that is to be more consistent with my weight training. Doing one weight session ever other week and never getting past DOMS isn't really doing me much good at this point. The main focus with the weights is to balance out my legs, my right leg looks like a track cyclists but my left leg looks like a marathon runners....

    I used to night ride all the time when I worked at Redwood City, I would have all these spots on my way home to San Jose.

    But man... sneaking around from the law got tiring after a few years. Pretty much illegal all over in the Peninsula and South Bay.

    For now... LUNCH RIDES!

    Quit complaining about shorter days, Californians. You don't know what darkness is.

    If we're going to kick either of the time modes to the curb, Standard Time is the one that ought to go.

    DST forever!

    Not ready for it and a bit bummed after realizing that the time change is this weekend. My counter measures....

    - Lunch time dirt jump/pump session at Shells since it's down the street from me
    - Focus on overall health and work in other types of workouts... more jogs, weights, etc.

    I have a feeling that I'll be riding less but spending more time wasting money on bike parts as well.

    I'll never see the sun on days I work because I work 12 hrs shifts 060-1800. Good part is I get 4days off a week including a wed-fri that I love for riding and tahoe.
    I really think if its feasible that more people should do it.

    So you want to have early sunsets all year long? You'll have to pry DST from my cold dead hands! Those morning hours of light are wasted on me, although I like waking up when it's not dark and it's safer for the kids to go to school with some light. But I'm already looking forward to March 8!

    I think so, thanks for asking I have been doing light digging, light riding (flat dirt / road) and hiking a lot. I have my final surgery consult next week with the full battery of x-rays to make sure the plate and bone have fused. Once I get that green light, I will be back out riding "for realz"

    I'm in favor of longer days and shorter nights year round. Isn't there something we can do about this celestial mechanics business?

    I prefer the extra hour of sleep, which wouldn't matter if we stuck with either definition of the time I guess.

    Being a night owl, I would actually prefer DST because it means longer periods of dark, esp in the fall and winter. Now that I think about it, I prefer that more than the extra sleep...

    by not artificially adding an hour in the morning and then in the evening the days become proportionally longer and shorter given the solar-lunar cycles...AND in concept DST was supposed to increase productivity but its proven that it doesnt...so what the need for it...
