Biking - Finally, a beautiful day!

Today, three of us took a leisurely ride along the Mohawk, between the Rexford and Crescent Bridges, starting at the Niskayuna Railroad Station.

There wasn't a lot of climbing, but I made it interesting by riding my old 10-speed and pushing a bigger gear than I normally would have up the hills. We stopped for lunch at the Stewart's on NY-9 at the Crescent Bridge, and then followed the bike path back to the start. I do this loop several times each year because of its scenery, variety, and relative flatness. It's a nice way to get in 28 miles without any killer uphills, and is a very popular route for local bikers.
