Biking - Clifton Park to Saratoga

This was almost a carbon copy of our trip a week or two ago, except that the temperatures were significantly warmer. It was almost 50F at 10am when we started, so excess layers were shed in advance and left in the cars. After a leisurely ramble up to Saratoga Spa State Park, and an equally leisurely lunch at a sunny picnic table, we headed back to Clifton Park. By now, the wind had come up, and was gusting strongly from the southwest, mostly in our faces. We found ourselves adding back a layer, then taking them off again after a hill or two warmed us up. We took a slightly different route back through Ballston Spa, stopping at a streamside park there, then finished the 41 miles in heavy afternoon traffic as schools were letting out.
