Not at all - glass is half full for me. Sportive season started in March but for some unknown reason, so many people wait until June before doing their first one. It's always a very long summer for me and I'm at the half way point now.

Is it just me, or does the number of people cycling drastically rise during the summer months? Not just talking about commuters here.

on a brighter (boom boom!) note, it's 17 days before the evenings start to shorten.

Not noticeable in June or conversely in December.

Day length varies from one day to another between a couple of secs and a minute at max.

In March/September it can be closer to 4mins daily change.

Very similar to tides (Law of 12ths) or a pendulum's motion.

2052 so far - aiming for 5K - oddly i always drop off in June and July so can't let that happen this year. Would love a commute longer than 4km to bump it up

You don’t have to take the most direct route...leave earlier and do a 20 or 25k route? What’s stopping you?

Used to live in D7, that's precisely what I used to do. 2 loops is about 20k.

My goals were going well up unti about a month ago where a change in job meant the commute by bike which was 13km each way was finished due to safety more then distance.

Slightly north of 1,700km, aiming for between 4k and 4.5k. Heading away in a week so won't be adding much til mid July. Had an appalling May & June last year due to illness, much better this year thankfully. And we're not even half way there.
