Most of my time spent on a bike is done whilst commuting back and forwards to work , although i am happy with this i do like to go a bit further and longer sometimes .
These longer rides are normally done early in the morning , so they dont interrupt with the rest of the days activities . I am more than happy getting up early so i can get a ride in before going to work or going out at the weekend early and then once done i can get back in to bed with a nice cup of tea .
At this moment of time these early rides are around the hour in length and aprox 15 + miles long , this suits me fine but as winter fades i will extend my rides where possible but again many people will feel they are not worth getting the bike out for .
So how long do you go out for and what time of day suits you best ?
I know some cyclist like being out all day and can cover 100+ miles in this time , just like i did when i was a teenager and went out most Sundays with the Kidderminster section of the CTC .
