I'm looking for company for morning laps this week and next week on Tuesday and Thursday. I will be leaving from inside the park at 90th and CPW at 6:10 a.m. For those B-SIG participants who have yet to get out during the week, this would be a great chance to put in a few miles. See you tomorrow!

I've always avoided morning loops because I hate being in the park with cars. But maybe that's just my excuse to sleep late. How annoying is the motorized traffic at that hour?

You are right, of course, that the Park is open to traffic during the early morning hours; however, I consider the number of cars using the Park at the proposed hour to be negligible. On my first lap this morning I was passed by 12 cars (yes, I counted). There were slightly more cars during my second and third laps, though there were also more cyclists on the road by then so we were able to claim the left-hand lane, as needed.

I’m not a morning person, so I whole-heartedly endorse any excuse to sleep in. However, I would not want others to be discouraged about riding laps in the early morning hours.

no more excuses

Thanks for the info. Maybe I'll see you on the East Side on Thursday. If it's not raining or threatening, that is.
