Riding on a sunny Sunday afternoon is very different than finding the motivation to wake up at 5:30am on a chilly morning to fit in an early 10 mile ride, be able to come home to shower and take a 1 hour commute in order to show up at work at a reasonable time.
This is my first successful attempt. Last time I tried waking up at 5:00am when I clearly didn't have to, I looked out the window and saw nothing but black. 5:30am sounds like a good compromise. I guess I shouldn't have been surprised to see what every native San Franciscan would expect to see in the wee early morning hours in Golden Gate Park - my fellow senior Chinese brethren doing Tai Chi!
