When is the exact time you usually go out for bicycle riding?

I tend to ride between midnight and sometime before the following midnight. FWIW, saying something like "16 p.m." is like saying "4 p.m. in the afternoon."

Some people might be suspicous why you want to know exactly when they will be away from home.

In my many years when my co-workers and I all used military time.... I liked to say things like: A quarter till 1600 hours (maybe... you had to be there).

Being retired I have the pleasure of being able to cycle whenever it's convenient... for me. What I've found is I prefer to cycle AFTER the morning traffic has pasted on weekdays. As the morning drive time drivers scare the crapola out of me. Rush hour (return home) is just about as bad. But in the summer... this does often put me in the mid-day heat.

But... we do always set the alarm when we leave the house. And the security cameras work 24/7.

On a normal weekday when I am working: I ride a mile via the rail trail to the subway at 6:45AM (on my hybrid), then I ride home a mile at 4:45pm. When I get home I chill out for a little bit, change into the spandex, get on the road bike and go for the full 21 miles on the rail trail at around 5:30pm. I go for the long ride 3 or 4 weekdays. Then if I go out Sat or Sun morning I try to get out by 7:30am before all the weekend rail trail numbskulls come out haha.

Something to be said about riding in the morning. It seems to start my day with a great feeling. Kinda grumpy if I dont get my morning ride in.

I tend to like mid-morning too. Maybe a little earlier on Sundays. I'm slow to get going in the a.m. and need a few cups of coffee, catch some news, and get into the right mental attitude. Also, this time of year all the landscapers dragging their wide-body trailers are off the road and have gotten where they need to go. Next best time is 1300 to 1500, before the school buses are back on the road. Then a cigar and a beer. Ahh, what a day.

I try to get out at the same time each day when I'm involved in a training block.

The time is determined by family life and business life.

But generally if I'm training I'll get out either in the early morning or early/mid afternoon.
