Although she's tenacious, she's not necessary proactive; some evenings, she'll head out the door at 9:00 PM because she hasn't gotten her ride in yet.
Lately, I have been accompanying her on these night rides to support her cycling and to spend more time with her. Tagging along has been good for me, too, because it's put me back in touch a little bit with what's magical about riding a bike. Wooshing through the night with only a cone of halogen light to guide you is exhilarating, and the play of light and shadow, and the sudden changes in air temperature are good for my brain.
If you haven't ridden your bike at night, get some lights and give it a go, it's a lot more fun than it really should be.
