Finally...first ride of the season!!!

Didn't ride far, just putzed about a little up and down the street while the wife worked on her "Recumbent" balance technique. So how does 1.19 miles sound as a first ride of the season?

I hope to pop the new pedals on my Volae tomorrow and putz around a little more and then tomorrow evening I intend to commence commuting to work.

Congratulations! Maybe there's a light at the end of the tunnel that's not an approaching locomotive.

1.19 miles beats what I got to ride today Sorry weather. Maybe we'll get some miles in tomorrow after church.

I wish I could even do that much. Seems every time the weather cooperates, I'm at work. I did about 20 miles on the trainer the other night though.

Sounds fine to me! I got in my second ride of the season yesterday, even with a high of 40 it felt warm and windless enough for me to ride. Nice 20 miles. Today I feel like I am coming down with a cold.
