Not the best weekend for riding, but we did manage to get in a bit. Things are almost starting to feel like spring around here. The trees are starting to get some buds. The gravel path is still too wet to ride on, seeing as it was pouring rain on Friday. There was also rain in the afternoon forecast and it was in the upper 40s, so we decided to keep closer to home than planned.
Street riding until we got to the path after 7 miles.
This is right by our froyo shop that we like to visit.
Too cold for yogurt yet, though. At least for us. These people were out for ice cream!
We headed down the path.
Our plan was to get in around 20 miles for the day, so we headed out to what we call Decision Point to turn around. This is about 5 miles from Lake George and the beginning of the hilly section. Mile 10.5.
It climbs for around 3 miles and then there is a 2 mile zoom downhill into Lake George Village. From here, it makes no sense to do anything but go all the way to the Lake or turn around. We decided to turn around here.
John says “Coffee Time??” I say “YES!!”
We biked back to Glens Falls to Coffee Planet. We spend a lot of
money time at this place. Bikes securely locked together and to the pole.
I also dropped and cracked my helmet on the bricks. Now I need a new one. 👿
Downtown Glens Falls. Very quaint. This was around mile 15 or so.
I had a black and white cookie with my coffee. I love the black and white cookie!
John had coffee cake. Our treats were touching on this plate, but that’s okay in the dessert world.
It was clouding up on our way home and I have to say it was pretty windy. I was sweating from the work into the wind- even though it was only in the 40s.
Another ride in the books!

No ride on Sunday as it was cold and windy. However, we did get a lot of outside work done. We tackled the bushes on the side of the house, which was a total bear thank to some neglectarino neighbors.
I got the garden bed cleaned up.
The only thing I haven’t done is trim the butterfly bush down because I like how it looks for now, but when it starts to bud at the bottom, I will cut it down.
Lots of bulbs coming up. Yay! My shadow looks like it’s chugging a beer, too 😀
Warmer weather coming this week – woo hoo!
