Biking - MHCC Tuesday Night Casual Ride

Tonight was another Mohawk-Hudson Cycling Club (MHCC) casual ride from relatively near home, so I decided to go. We started at the Lynwood School in nearby Guilderland, and biked a 22-mile loop to Indian Ladder Farms and back. Casual rides are listed as 10-12mph, but everyone was a little faster than that, and a few of us kept getting ahead whenever there was a climb of any size. The profile looks daunting, but the elevation differences were small, and the total climbing for the ride was only a little over 500 feet.

After the ride, several of us retired to an Italian restaurant nearby for dinner. The portions were so huge that most of us couldn't finish them, and will have leftovers for the week to come.
