Biking - Schenectady/Amsterdam Loop

My bike odometer seemed to be having calibration issues the past few times out, so I decided to take a measured ride on the bike path, with its quarter-mile markings, and see what was up. Whatever tweaking I had done in the past few days must have solved the problem, since it was close to dead-on.

Starting at Schenectady Community College, I rode up the south side of the Mohawk River to Amsterdam, crossed the river on NY30, and returned to Schenectady via NY5 and Scotia. It's an easy 32 miles, and for once, there was no appreciable wind in either direction. I averaged over 15mph and never felt like I was pushing it at all.
