Biking - SWC Thursday night ride

Tonight's beer and pizza ride was at Galway Lake, northwest of Schenectady. We do the same ride from here every year, and since rain was possible, and since a couple of the usual hills begged to be made harder, I took the old 10-speed again. As usual, we kept up the Thursday evening furious pace, and I was pretty well spent by the end. The hills were easier than usual, but the 9%-er a mile from the end was an all-out effort.

It was at least 10 degrees cooler at the lake, so we gathered inside afterwards for, not pizza, but several different pasta and lasagna dishes prepared by our hosts. A strong fast ride, good food, and good conversation made for a great night.
