It was an early morning as the normal, beat the sun, riders and now almost 1/2 the ride is in the dark. When I was climbing up Alpe I looked behind me and caught a sliver of a moon rising over the mountain. It was vividlt clear and can't remember seeing anything like it. It distracted me most the ride into the sun rise, saw some lights out there nice an early, comforting a bit. Good ride.
