Six weeks off the bike. That's been unthinkable for the past 5-6 years. But that's where I found myself this week when some friends and I decided to once again take a leisurely tour of the Mohawk River, between Rexford and Crescent. We do this ride several times a year, but it's especially nice in the fall, when we stop for cider and donuts at Riverview Orchards.
This was mostly a social ride, with lots of conversation and an easy pace. It felt good to be back in the saddle again after a long stretch of mostly walking and hiking, and the 28-mile loop passed quickly and easily. We're hoping to do more rides like this if the weather continues to cooperate.
