I got up early today because I had stuff I needed to finish at work by 9:00am. I still managed to stop by one of the numerous DC-area Bike to Work Day pit stops and get a free water bottle and T-shirt though!
It was somewhat celebratory for me since this was the first bike commute in almost a week and a half - I sprained my wrist last week and was in a pretty restrictive splint for a while. I'm still in a splint now, but I've been given the green light on anything I can do (while wearing the splint) that doesn't hurt. Biking isn't super easy - it's awkward to hold the handlebars - but it doesn't hurt if I'm careful.
