What time do you go to bed/how many hours sleep ?
I’m normally in bed by 11 and my alarm is at 8 unless I’m working away and then I’ll be up to suit my journey time.
The Mrs works alternating early/late shifts so I occasionally get woken up by her alarm at 05:30 but that just means time to go for a run in the morning.Posted 3 years agosharkbaitMember
between 11pm and 12pm and until 7:30-7:45
Just about enough.

Had to get up at 5:00am on Monday to get daughter #1 to school to get to a a rowing event – I was wrecked that night! god knows how she/they managed it as they didn’t get back until 10:00pm
Got to do it again on Saturday and we’re out that night 🙁tonydMember
10:30 – 11:00, up at 7am latest as that’s when the kids get us up. It’s just about enough, if I get much less these days I start getting grumpy.
Edit: Actually I think the problem for me isn’t the amount of sleep but the amount of unbroken sleep. Generally one of the kids will wake up for a wee and the other will have a moan about something or other. I’ll wake at the slightest sound from them so probably get about 2-4 hours unbroken. For a while I was sleeping right through and felt really good.Posted 3 years agocrispoSubscriber
Bed normally around 10.30 then up at 6am everyday.
If I’m out riding I might not get in until midnight. Generally don’t feel tired, I think when I do it’s more the 12 hours at work than the amount of sleep to be honest!
I still wake up by 7 at the weekends and I go to bed later so don’t think I’m in a sleep deficit at all really.Posted 3 years agocraigxxlMember
Reading the above I’m getting no where near enough sleep. Normally in bed between 11.30pm and Midnight up again at 6.40am.Posted 3 years ago
I’m not usually that tired on a night but knackered on a morning. Strange thing is with or without an alarm, I’m up at the same time every day which is annoying on a weekend. If I go bed later I’m normally awake within 1/2 hour of my normal wake up time. Only time I can really sleep longer than this is if I’ve had a skin full the night before.Gary_MMember
In bed for just after 10 Sunday to Thursday, read for a bit then light off for around 10:30, up at 6am latest but usually awake about 5:30 am. Ride 20 miles to work, 20 home and I’m pretty much **** most of the time, I could sleep right now.
Lots of worries at the moment so not getting quality sleep either.
Stay up till about midnight at the weekends if I can stay awake, would be very unusual to sleep past 7am.Posted 3 years agothegreatapeMember
It makes no odds what time I go to bed…
Before her- she’ll wake me up because ‘I can’t get to sleep with that racket you’re making’.
After her – she’ll keep coming down asking ‘When are you coming to bed? I can’t get to sleep until you’re in bed too’.
Thereafter, the amount of sleep depends on whether I get a call out/someone wets their bed/there is a bear or crocodile spotted during the night, shite like that!Posted 3 years agojonnoukMember
Bed ~12. Usually asleep somewhere after 1230 when the neighbour has turned off her TV. Wake up at: ~330 when deliveries for the warehouse arrive; ~5am when the seagulls nesting in the flat opposite me wakeup; 7am when my housemate’s alarm goes off. I usually drag myself out by 815. If the earplugs don’t fall out I get a full night’s sleep.
I slept better when I lived right next to the WOE mainline & a train washing machine.Posted 3 years agoseadog101Subscriber
I work offshore so have to cope with –
2 weeks of Midday-midnight shift:
Excellent, Bed 00:30 ~ 07:00, then 5hrs to myself (gym, movie, food).
2 weeks of Midnight-midday shift:
Terrible, sleep a few hours in the afternoon if I’m lucky, for a few days, gradually fatigue gets me and then one 10hr long sleep of death (repeat).
4 weeks at Home: bed by 23:00, 7hrs every night. and a post lunch 30min shut eye!
And international flights to mess up the start and end of the cycle.Posted 3 years agosamuriMember
If I’m cycling in I’ll usually be in bed about 22:30, set the alarm for 5:30. I’ll be awake about 3:00 though normally.
Driving in, I get an extra half hour so in bed about 11:00, set alarm for 6:00. Still awake at 3:00 mind.
Friday night I’ll stay up late, say 2am, if I’m really, really lucky (and have had a few beers), I’ll wake up about 7:00 then snooze for an hour. Love Saturday mornings.Posted 3 years ago
