I don't stretch before I start riding, but I have a post-it on my monitor that says "stretch" and 3-4 times a day I'll just get up and do one simple stretching exercise -- usually toe-touch since that's my least flexible direction. I started this just after the xmas holidays and I can feel the difference on the slopes.

Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.
