11:12 pm - Nice day for a ride ...
Apparently I've turned into Calvin's dad. I got up well before 6am this morning, got on my bike at 7am (sunrise was 7:25ish), and headed to work ... and it was fun. Despite being hideously early, and 10°C outside, and dark.

Also, I managed my best time for the ride in to work[2], just under 37 minutes[1][3] to the entrance to the loading dock at my workplace.

The ride home (also in the dark, a balmy 15° though) was pretty good too - total time for the day was under 82 minutes.

[1] Not including time stopped e.g. at lights, waiting for cars to get out of my way, etc.

[2] For this particular route, and from this house, and to this particular work address ... which covers most of the time since last December.

[3] My route is about 19.5km, and has 100m of climbing and 200m of descending on the way in, and vice versa on the way home.

Nice to hear I'm not the only one out riding my bicycle this time of year. And nice time too - my most recent ride took the same time but covered 5.5km less (though my time included all the stops).

Wow, good for you. If it was safe to ride to my work and manageable, I would try it. Maybe when I move to Melbourne :-) (I wish, I wish, I wish)
