You certainly are making the most of the sudden good weather! Congrats on having the stamina for a 2-1/2 hour bike ride so early in the season! Does your butt hurt?
Thanks. For STL, this was late start for cycling.
Sore butt - Only on spin bikes in Y. Never on road bike.
STL metro has lots of good riding - city, county, St Charles County, Illinois including paved Madison County rail-to-trail.
