Late season riding. It really can be so nice. We headed up to the lake as John hasn’t been there in a while. I am styling in my new long underwear!!
I start feeling like the Michelin Man later in the season with all the layers
We made good time riding. Quick stop for John to take off his jacket and I did a shadow shot:
I noticed I was lagging a bit on the way up the hills. It’s because I lowered my calories the last few days since I didn’t exercise much and I felt that deficit. That’s why it is pointless to try to lose weight during biking season.
Arrival at Lake George!
It’s past peak foliage, but still pretty. Lake George is decorated for fall, even though half the shops are now closed.
House of Frankenstein still open:
We walked through the Christmas ornament store and I saw this sign, which made me laugh.
The instruments are like 4 inches big – how would you play them??
Anyway, we did the usual 2 stops for snack. Cafe Vero for lattes. This is their specials board.
I cannot imagine how super sweet a nutella latte would be. I stuck with my unflavored latte with its cute little heart.
And a peanut butter chocolate brownie from the LG Baking Company. John had a piece of carrot cake.
Man, was this rich! Enjoyable, though. We sat in Shepard’s Park to eat.
It was sunny when we arrived, but just in the few minutes we were sitting outside, the wind picked up and clouds came in. Rain was in the forecast for later, but we were concerned it was going to come a lot earlier! So, we headed home.
We took more of the path home closer to home instead of going on the roads.
I am actually not crazy about being on the paths when the leaves drop this much. It hides stuff like rocks, branches and holes.
All home safe and sound!

Yearly mileage after a windy ride on Sunday = 2358. Only 142 to go! This week is unseasonably cold, so I don’t know how much riding I will be getting in.
