I commute at 5AM and used to train at 5AM with a group before I started commuting earlier (new job etc). Here are a few things that help getting up early: - Riding with a group was very easy for me, knowing that you need to meet up with people motivates you to get up and go. - Prepare all your cycling goodies/pack your bag/lunch the night before - Prepare mentally - Get enough rest. Those are about the only things that really help me. To be honest, I find it very easy to turn over and continue sleeping, but I want to get out of that bad habit (happening more often recently) and get back into my routine of waking up early. For some its easier than others. I know there are guys that are out at 4AM and I might need to be doing that soon . So, what helps you get up and go ride early morning for training or commuting?
