Yep I rode. They're working on the parking lot so I'm probably going to find my bike coated in concrete dust when I go out.

I got to work a little later than normal but rode today this has been like the 4th or 5th time this year. As long as it is nice enough outside I try to ride. It has been either too cold or wet lately.
