Early riser - Why we wake up early

Words & video: Charlie Coquillard

Early risers are different, almost like another breed. It makes riding even better; you're only a few layers away from having the road to yourself.

Sometimes the sun hasn't even started to peak out yet. It's still cold, dark, and the only cars on the road are tradies going to work. But that's just what early risers do, fight the elements, brave the darkness, and go out regardless of the conditions.

In the mornings, the road is yours.
