I signed up for 30 Days of Biking, an online pledge to ride every day. No mileage commitment, no restriction on where or the type of bike, or how far, just a pledge to ride very day in the month of April and post it online in your favorite forum: blog, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

But today, Day 1, posed a bit of a conundrum. I'd put in 298 miles in 8 days from 3/24 - 3/31 and was ready for a break. Insufficient sleep, rain and 34 deg F this morning gave me a good excuse to take it. After work I met my father at Stan and Joe's in Annapolis. The evening progressed to Castle Bay and then dinner with Mom and some of their friends at Cafe Normandy. A great evening, but no miles on the bike and it was getting late.

So when I got home I rigged the bike for weekend riding, swapped the fat commuter tires for skinny weekend tires and removed the rack. Then took it for a quick test ride around the hood. 1 down, 29 days to go.
