It was pretty chilly when we left the house, but it was supposed to get warmer. 8 miles later and we hit up Panera Bread for breakfast!
It was nice to relax and chat over coffee. We decided to keep riding for a while and head to Lake George:
I will say that it’s now tourist time. The people on the path. The people! Spread over the path, with dogs that chased us, kids weaving all over the path on bikes. It can be dangerous. John and I got separated by a clot of people and then I saw a young boy topple over from his bike, so I stopped to make sure he was okay. His mom had scooped him and and he was crying, but no blood or anything.
I said to him, “Do you know what this means?”
“It means you are a real biker now.” Then he smiled and we knew he was fine. So, I continued on and met John at the lake, who was probably wondering where I got off to. LOL.
We hadn’t thought too much about this ride as I didn’t have sunscreen and we didn’t have a snack. It was a long ride without food, so we got a snack at the lake and wandered around.
Fort William Henry fife and drum group.
We headed back home and wound through more people. Ugh! It went from 0 to 60 with people this weekend. We had shed jackets since it was pretty warm.
After a bit, I realized that I was going to burn in the sun, so I had to put my jacket back on to protect my arms. I did not have my travel sunscreen in my bag since I took it out last fall! We really didn’t prepare well LOL!
It really was a gorgeous day.

This ride felt really good. Definitely ready to head down to Saratoga! Not to mention I want to do 46 miles on my birthday in a couple weeks 😀
