Punching out

If it's June, and dark out, then i'm leaving work too late. But the bright side of a sunless departure is the cool evening air and city lights for the commute. Traffic is also lighter. I really enjoy riding at this time of day, around 10pm. Weeknights are best as most city revelers aren't drunk and the drivers aren't either (at least less-so than Friday night). Vancouver has a selection of beautiful bridges for leaving the downtown core each with a flavour of sea breeze depending on the industry that surrounds it. Another detail only the bikers will notice.

I also love riding at night. I love the cool air, and the isolation. just you and your headlight.

Agreed. It can be the most fantastic time to ride.
