Actually there is - you can get out early and be finished your ride by the time the sun gets high. That's why we start riding at 5:30 am all year round here in Brisbane. Apart from that, hydrate correctly and you'll soon acclimatise.
Ah, that must be what I'm doing wrong here.
My regular bunch heads out at 6am for about an hour, all year round... so for most of the year it's still dark when we get back
At least that means in winter we get to start out in the relative warmth of pre-dawn... so it's just getting in to the coldest time of the day as we warm up
That said, it's more about finding any time for riding than specifically selecting such an ungodly hour due to its favourable climate...
