The biggest let down about changing back to Standard Time from Daylight Savings is that my time to ride after work is now limited. With sunset at about 6:15 PM in Daylight Savings, there is just enough time to slip in a one hour ride before it really starts to get dark.
However, with Standard Time, it's now dark at 5:15, which robs a good deal of daylight after work. I telework two days weekly, and I can ride on those days if I get started on work very early (about 7 A.M.). However, when I go into the office and you throw in the commute time, I lose the chance to ride after work in Standard Time.
I still get two days of ride during the week and two days on the weekend, which is not too bad. Hopefully the weather holds for a little while yet this season.
