Saturday was a picture perfect day. It was in the upper 70s, sunny, low humidity with just a light breeze. Days like this are why we live in the Adirondacks! It doesn’t get any better.
We decided on a ride to the lake. First, we had to make a pit stop. We were pet sitting this weekend and had to make a stop in for kitty feeding. This meant going on our old paths that we don’t take anymore.
These are cinder paths and kind of bumpy. Some parts are in disrepair as well. When really heavy rains come, it washes away parts of the cinder and they only replace it periodically. It is nice and shady, though.
The pet sitters!
I made that picture smaller because it was kind of scary bigger LOL! Do I look afraid that John is about to get me?
Then it was off to the lake. There was road riding until we got back to the lake bike paths. We took a break around mile 13 ish or so for a snack. Thousands of miles have been shared between me and this bike.
Dried pineapple before we started the hill climbing.
There were a fair number of people out. It’s tourist season, so the paths get quite a bit of use.
It was great to be riding in the shaded areas. Even though it was in the upper 70s, you still get pretty hot riding in the direct sunlight.
The lake was picture perfect!
We stopped to grab an iced coffee and then to the Lake George Baking Company. So glad this place is not in downtown Glens Falls or I would be in serious trouble. I almost got a cookie because these were so durn cute.
However, I chose an apple pastry to have with my coffee.
Ride worthy. Yes, indeed.
Doesn’t the lake look inviting?
It’s actually pretty cold, though. I have to tip my hat to the groundskeepers of the village. They do such a great job with the landscaping and everything was in full bloom.
Yeah, I might have taken a bazillion flower pictures…
Time to hit the roads!

We did a bit shorter of a ride than normal for a Saturday. We were both a little tired and the lake ride is quite hilly. I only need about 530 miles more to hit my goal for the year!
