Haha, yes, there is always the die hard riders :wink:I used to ride from 5 am to 8 am everyday. There was a group of us who met up every morning for a ride. Sometimes we'd go out after 8 pm and ride in the moonlight too. But between 8 am & 8 pm, other than to check water, we didn't do much outside.
I just can't drag myself out of bed early enough. Especially with the growing business DH and I run, our hours usually end up being later in the day, often staying up as late as 2am (our business is a creative type and we tend to write better at those hours).
Got up around 7:30, went outside, and said 'it's too hot!'. lol. I can handle a short 30-40 minute arena workout just before dark. Even early morning, I've found the sun just too intense for me, so it's better when it's setting and not directly on me anymore.
My whole family desires to leave the desert, so I don't think we will be permanent desert dwellers.
