Getting that mileage up already. This weekend’s weather was amazing! It really felt like early June. Crazy April so far – it started really cold with snow and now temps in the 70s. It felt great, though.
Saturday we decided to go for 30 miles. We thought briefly about going to Saratoga, which is a little over 40, but seeing as long rides have been about 20, that would have been too much. We decided to pad our lake with ride some extra miles.
Wave hi to the people, John!
It was warm up until we got the the lake itself. It’s usually cooler there, but it was also breezy and probably 10 degrees colder! Brrrr. Glad we had jackets along. Tourists are starting to arrive and some of the seasonal businesses are opening up.
We stopped at the Lake George Baking company to pick up a treat and then got some coffee here:
Isn’t it funny that they sell coffee and gelato at an olive oil company? Anyway, I had a cinnamon twist that had chocolate rolled into the center:
This was sooo good! The LG Baking Company is going to be opening a satellite store a few miles from our house soon, which is big trouble.
You can see how choppy it is from the wind.
The boats are just about ready to start for the season. We will be taking a cruise in May celebrating my parents’ 50th anniversary.
No flowers yet, so no worries with this sign.
While the temperatures felt good, it still is pretty brown around here.
Don’t you love the telephone poles smack in the middle of the path? Going the other way, it’s a downhill run to these and a pretty good clip, too.

This was the right amount of miles to do. I was ready to be done. If we had tried to go for 40, I would have been sore and tired. I think a couple more weeks of good riding and I’ll be ready for 40. The average speed was a little slow, but my hills legs are still building and the speed will come for those. We ended up with about another 18 mile ride on Sunday and it’s feeling great!
