Sometimes it's about being stuck indoors working all day, rushing home from work and NEEDING to go for a bike ride because the day was so perfect, you couldn't experience it, so here's your last chance before it ends.
Ended work at 6pm, out riding at 6:30pm for just shy of 2 hours on empty Sunday roads (maybe 5 cars passed me?), and we still had another hour and a bit of daylight after that. Although I do love mornings, the way that the setting sun hits the mountains, leaving some ridges in darkness and others in blinding light, well that's just heaven.
Rest week is done -- time to go up up up until Lake Wanaka half-iron taper, then race baby race January 21st!
