Biking - MHCC Half-Century Route

More nice weather, so a friend and I decided to ride the route of the Mohawk-Hudson Cycling Club's half century ride. With their annual Century Weekend coming up on September 12-13, I wanted to get in a long ride in preparation for riding the 100k (62.5 mile) route on that weekend. I've done that metric century the past few years, and it's a good time, with extremely fit people, followed by a good feed after the finish.

Today's route is here, a little over 50 miles and 1300 feet of climbing. We rode the entire thing in about 4 hours, including a few brief stops, and I feel pretty good afterwards, though I will sleep well tonight.
