An 8 AM start was necessary to beat the coming rains. I got around 30 yards before turning back to get another layer. It was nippy. I decided to ride the Rochester long loop with is around 26-27 miles.
I’m not one to leave the house for a bike ride and see how fast I can finish. I also don’t wear spandex with matching helmets if I even wear one. That depends on my route and which bike I’m riding. I always take my camera along and often stop to record things that get my attention. I’ll be doing a lot of things like this in July when #3 son and I ride the Erie Canal. That’s going to be a 400 mile, eight day bike ride and sightseeing tour some of the unique towns and small cities of upstate NY.
