Our group is pushing beginning ride times to 5:45 am here in the Chilly Chicagoland area. Riding with this group is beginning to feel like a work release program!

I can understand when it's warmer or the need to get a long ride in warrents it but sheesh....is this the norm?

at 7:30 am, at a local park. Even that is considered kinda early, but we avoid traffic that way.

We meet at 9 in the winter, 8 in the summer. As you may be able to tell from my screen name, I'm in the Chicagoland area too. What's your club and why so early?

BTW - I'm assume we're talking about Saturday and Sunday rides.

Oy it's nuts. While it's nice to be on quite streets what's to say 4 am isn't better...it's simple math. We are in the Oak Park area. Most of the guys want to get back early enough to do family stuff...but it's still really early and makes the day drag in the late afternoon. Are you riding with the Turin gang?

I ride with the Alberto's gang. It takes about 30 minutes to ride up there, but I prefer it over closer options.
