Riding In The Dark

This morning I awoke at 5am for my first morning hill workout. The rest of my family is out of town right now so if I got back later than expected, it wouldn't ruin anybody else's morning routine. I found out a few things by riding in darkness:

How do you clip in if you can't see your pedal? Answer: clip out under a street light.

My Garmin's light doesn't stay on so I'm going to need to set the cadence alert.

Those Flea Lights really are bright for their size.

Believe it or not, I was actually stronger on this hill workout than Saturday's workout.

Even though it's cold, being out for only a half hour means the cold doesn't get very far into me...unlike my long rides on the weekend, when the cold reaches in deep.
