Walk - Mohawk River Bike Path

I'd hoped I might get in a bike ride today, but it turned out cold and very windy, so I bagged that idea. Didn't feel like running either, so decided on another walk to check out the rideability of the bike path toward the west. Started at the Rice Road parking area, and went out beyond the Thruway Exit 26 ramp, and found the entire length now clear of snow and ice. There was a good bit of gravelly pebbly debris from the winter, but no longer any reason not to ride. That opens up the usual river loops of 15 and 33 miles, mostly flat, that are so good early in the season. Walked about 4 miles, passing though the old Erie Canal Lock 23 chamber on the way back.
