Biking - Clifton Park to Saratoga Springs

A group of friends was planning a ride to Saratoga Springs today,but by a different route than we'd used for this same ride in the past. This would be a 45-mile loop, with lunch in Saratoga Spa State Park. A few of us were still sore from Sunday's hike, especially our quads, but a relaxed bike ride seemed like a good idea to get everything loosened up again.

The morning dawned cloudy and cool, with a slight threat of afternoon showers, but they never materialized. By lunchtime, the sun was shining brightly, and it stayed with us the rest of the day. The route home took us past Lakeside Farms, so an ice cream stop was a necessity. Overall, we were probably out for nearly 6 hours, but never pushed hard and just enjoyed the conversation and the day.
