    40 mile "lunch break" ride from home. Still having bottom issues adjusting to a new saddle. Have my first century ride of the year coming up next weekend. I may have to do the whole ride standing up.

    First commute of the year, that I can recall. About 22 miles total because I took the long way home to take advantage of the 75-degree weather. Windy, but fun!
