Daylight savings time .. yay! Not only does that mean I can leave the office with daylight, but it also means I can do a little more riding after work. It’s really nice not having to carry that big extra bulky battery for my Stella 300 (even though I still carry the Urban 400, but I can just mount that on my handlebar. This also means I don’t have to mount it on my helmet, and have a head heavy ride.
Meetup rides are more fun … I get to see what everyone looks like … LOL. I also get more aggressive with daylight, and I think everyone else did too. We did Los Altos Hills, and it just felt like a more frisky ride. Paloma gave us a swift kick in the ass, and if that weren’t enough, we then attacked Mora. I think I over prepared myself for Mora, and just went on the easiest gear, but that did make my time suffer a bit. By the time I finished this, I went back home, and only had to turn lights on with 3 miles to go. That’s a win win!
Funny note about yesterday’s commute … I rode all fall and winter, in the dark, and without a flat. Now, riding in bright daylight, I get a flat. Doesn’t make sense does it? Go figure.
