About 8pm. Sun sets early here even in the summer (latest sunset is about 7pm).

41 miles on my hybrid yesterday, my longest ride. Decent pace (for me) and I felt good afterwards. Looking forward to getting a new bike to keep it going.

I would've thought it was more deeper into the night than that.

On the three day Yangtze River trip the animated lighting on the bridges was absolutely phenomenal. We did the "harbor" tour in Shanghai and it was also quite fantastic. It must be fun pedaling around there.

One of the vagaries of China's unified time zone - most countries this size would have at least 3 time zones, but China only has one. As a result, cities in the east of China have sunrise very early, and sunset very early as well. Here in Shanghai in the summer the sun rises by 5am but it's fully set by just after 7pm, so it's fully dark by 8pm. As someone originally from Calgary where the sun doesn't set in the summer until well after 9pm, that took a lot of getting used to.

i know what you mean, being in Mich. The early morning is where my biological clock is registering being most active.

I was thinking the time was around between 23:30 & 01:00.


65 Miles O.D. Beautiful open sky.

I spent some time in Keflavik Iceland when I was in the Navy....the 24 hr clock was mandatory item you needed to have if you planned to be anywhere at the correct time.

jaxgtr 08-05-21 07:43 PM

Because the the rain just wont stop........37.3 miles on the trainer.

kahn 08-05-21 08:13 PM

23 even, 1,100 gain. Home my 10am.

As a PSA I took out my venerable can of white marking paint and marked pot holes on some heavily bike traveled routes. Got a nice thank you from a rider who stopped to chat. Mileage today? Who cares. ;)

In Seattle, I would need one of those Dept of transportation line painting trucks for the amount of paint I'd need! Actually, reporting potholes to the city site does sometimes work quickly. But if there's a series, they sometimes only get one or two leaving more north/south or east/west of where I reported.

Troul 08-06-21 06:47 PM

104 Miles O.D.

kahn 08-06-21 08:26 PM

It is hard posting after Troll, ahem, Troul!

15 and 800 feet.

ofajen 08-06-21 08:35 PM

17 miles. And I was reminded why absolutely no one else was out on the trail near the river at dusk. If you donít really bring it, bumpy gravel notwithstanding, you will suffer death by horsefly. They move pretty fast! I ended up doing a pretty fast ride (for that route). I suppose it helps to have the place to yourself.
