Best time to ride...

What do you believe is the best time of the day to ride in Houston. I have broken it down by what i believe

8:00 p.m to 3:00 am -*
most preffered time to ride from what i have seen. Good time to meet new people. The sun is down which means none of the blazing heat we are famous for. Only danger is the drunk drivers coming out of the clubs later in the night. Cops also seem to have more bloodlust during these times.

5:00 a.m to 9:00 a.m. -* *
Very early in the morning so waking up for a 5 am ride is hard. Would require going to sleep early, however, it has its benefits. Traffic is fairly light starting off and slowly congests as people head to work. No sun equals no scorching heat to deal with. You get a mixutre of night and day riding and are greeted with the sunrise. Surprising how an early morning ride can wake you up.

12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. -*
Wow it is hot. At least for summer. Once autumn and winter set in, heat is not an issue. Traffic fairly light as people are at work. However, most bikers are also at work so riders are fairly light too. Bright outside so visiability is at its best. Hot pavement means sticky tires. However, full leathers and the sun do not mix well for long periods of times.

These are just observations I have of various times in the day to ride. Personally, any time that i get to ride is perfect, regardless of the time of day. Feel free to add your two cents to it.

Re: Best time to ride...

I like 6pm - 10pm. Its cooling off outside but the road is hot. Light traffic, no drunks. . . it just seems to me like the total retards and the people who are spaced out from work are off the road.

did you foget to mention that around this time, its not the sun you should be worried about it, it should be the rain, lately it usually hits between these times

Re: Best time to ride...

my all time favorite is sunday morning 5am-noon. for me , this is the ideal time to ride. Second favorite time to ride for me is between 7pm and ????. Unless its spring for two weeks out of the year in houston, its gonna be hot. I hate to ride in heat. Distracts me too much. So i usually try to ride at night, early moring, or twilight.
