Biking - Mohawk River Bike Path

Today was another Taconic Hiking Club bike ride, a 34-mile round trip from the Niskayuna train station at Lions Park to Kiwanis Park in Rotterdam. Three of us headed west into a very strong westerly headwind, gusting over 30mph. It was like doing a 17-mile climb, always in fairly low gears and spinning furiously. After lunch at the pavilion there, we turned around and sailed back the way we had come. The westbound trip had taken 2 hours, and the return only 1.5 hours. Once back at the cars, I pushed on just a few minutes further, upping my season's total mileage to 300.
