It’s 5:02am as I write this. For anyone other than a cyclist, and perhaps a swimmer, rower or jockey, that would be rather sad. But for me, and in all likelihood you, it’s entirely normal. Yes, the body clock of a cyclist works on completely different time zones to ‘normal’ folks. My theory is that wherever you are in the world, shift your clock ahead by one, if not two zones. And you’ll be sweet. For example, whilst I may physically live in Sydney, I’m actually functioning more on Auckland time, some two hours ahead. I’m not joking. It really works.
The only drawback is I’m like a hypnotist’s volunteer by 9pm most nights: very sleepy.
