Biking - Saratoga National Historical Park

Today, Holly's twice-weekly biking group was going to Saratoga Battlefield to ride the tour road.  This has some appeal, so I tagged along.  It was an almost traffic-free relaxed 11 miles in scenic surroundings on a cool comfortable morning.  To make it more of a challenge, I rode it on my old 10-speed, and without shifting at all, staying in about a 65-70 gear/inch setting for the whole ride.

From the overlooks, it looked like the Hudson had receded quite a bit, and it was nowhere near as muddy as the Mohawk, at least not here.  Things are beginning a very slow and protracted return to normal.
