    I enjoy riding a bicycle at night, especially in the light of a full moon. But it is more dangerous, so I don't do it much.

    you know what? I think riding at night is actually safer then during the day.

    that is, if you know your route and it's already relatively safe.

    I have a 30 mile loop on well maintained roads and I know every crack in the pavement.

    at night, I can light myself (or my bike) up like a Christmas tree and I am far more visible to motorists than if I'm blending in with the scenery during the day.

    the biggest danger while cycling, day or night, are the *kitten* texting when they should have their eyes on the road.

    I like to run at night because it's cooler out and there's less people.

    Early Morning is the best time for me. Afternoon is always a problem for me because i lose control of my schedule.

    I leave the house at 4:30 and run to the gym for about 1 hour.
    Then do weights and HIIT until about 7:45am.
    Then shower and work.

    Y opens at 5:30 am and I'm one of about a dozen people waiting for the doors to open. Then back home, shower and off to work for 7. I love living in a small city with short commutes.

    I prefer to workout in the morning. Get it out of the way and then have the rest of the day to do other things. Also my gym is either very quiet in the morning or it is an older crowd. If I go in the evening it’s really busy and tends to be a very young crowd (and I feel a bit out of place!).

    I like the 'mood' of working out at night.

    I prefer to do my exercise in the morning. Finish it by 7am M-F. Then it s done, no matter what else ones up during the day.

    I may need to change things up a bit since people are starting to flock to the gym. I know after new years everyone seems to be waiting for equipment

    WOW you guys are awesome, I wish I had your motivation. How early do you go to bed to have energy to wake up so early?

    I like to go in the morning before work. My Y is two miles from home and less than one mile from my office, so I am at the gym no later than 6:30 and out by 7:50 to start work at 8. I occasionally go after work, but I have a very easy time talking myself out of it after working all day, the morning is easier and more enjoyable for me by far.
