First day bike commute

Ride was great, residential neighborhoods were quiet and slow. One road with trucks and everyone drove respectfully around me. Only took 10 minutes longer than commute by car (25% longer). After I get in better shape, should be able to ride about twice as fast in areas I don't need to stop. I'm betting I'll get it to the amount of time it takes to drive!

Forgot: bike lock, belt for pants and deodorant.

Lower back is a little tender, but I figure it'll also improve as I get in shape.
