Nope, it never is.
Plenty of hours in a day without having to resort to early starts.

At the height of summer when we're trying to avoid the high midday temperatures (and all the tourists) I agree, an early run is nice.. but for April and on a weekday that isn't necessary.
But whatever guys, not meaning to derail your thread Brian, and there seems to be plenty of early birds keen to join you. I just wanted to give some feedback that later starting runs would be appreciated (at least by me) and possibly tempt out some riders that don't normally join in.
Have a good run guys.

Jug Inspector has a point. Did last weeks run on my own at 10 am and def had less traffic ,missing work and school runs. That being said I know some of the guys may have commitments etc.

I actually set a start time for this run of 08.30 to give people plenty of time to get to the start without having to get up too early. I'm happy to get down to Exeter for Simon's 06.00 start runs. If there's light then it's potential riding time for me. At the other end of the candle I can also do a lot of other jobs before a later starting run if someone wants to post one up....

On that very note. I'll be getting up a midweek, later start ride to new(er) horizons soon - as soon as I've sorted the Sprint's starting woes in fact - 'expert' opinion suggests starter motor or s' solenoid so won't be long before ride details are up. He said hopefully 🙄.

Due to popular demand I've changed the kick off from Tivvy to.....

10.30a.m.

Just as long as we're back in time for my slippered feet up with a brandy before bedtime :mrgreen: =:) :mrgreen: =:)

Can I get a sick note from somebody's mum as I work in the week. Otherwise it would be ideal as I could get down for then.
