And God created the bicycle, so that man could use it as a means for work and to help him negotiate life's complicated journey.

    Time to go on holiday then, where it gets dark earlier and when you come back it'll feel like it's getting dark later. That's my plan anyway.

    I always find it slightly depressing that the longest day occurs so early into summer. That said, it's a nice feeling when a few days before Christmas they start getting longer again.

    Not quite true.

    It's the sunrises that get later to shorten the day. This happens for about a week and then the nights start to draw in too, but not as quickly as the mornings. The opposite happens in December. :D

    But it's still a sod.

    Move to a country above or below 33 degrees latitude, you don’t get anything like as much variation in the length of the day / night. Or move to the arctic circle / North Pole where you can get up to 6 months where the sun never truly sets completely over the horizon, it’s a bit more complicated than that

    But to all intents and purposes, it’s pretty much the case.

    The sunsets on the equator are amazing. One moment it's daylight; then it's dark. Scary until you get used to it.

    I was in Indonesia about 20 years ago,watching the sunset on a small beach,it seemed to have miles to go,so I went back to room where i was staying about 50yd away to get my camera,by the time I came back out the sun had gone,I was properly gobsmacked how fast it had disappeared
