Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Those old Sea Craft Hulls are highly sought after.

That was a few miles south of 67. Burnt Hills/Charlton/Milton has so many nice rides.

You can’t go wrong out that way. I mostly do that area, the side of Saratoga Lake or down to the hills off of 5S or 5 if I have more time.

Occasional windmill, a few deer, eventually opening up into a few farms. For the vast majority of the day though, there was nothing.
