We have been having the best biking weather this summer, which makes up for the poopy spring. It’s funny, though, we don’t get projects around the house done since we save those for rainy weekends and we haven’t had a rainy weekend in a couple months! :D
Saturday we went garage saling via bicycle, which is good to keep you from buying whatever. I have specific things I am looking for, one of which is a trunk. I want to use a trunk as a coffee table, but I have to find the perfect one. I have been seeing a lot of them, and it was no exception on this day.
This one is a little big, though. Too tall, but the look is right. The search will continue. John is really hoping that I don’t find one until after we move
We rode about 15 miles and came home to eat some lunch before taking another ride. We decided to head up to the lake. The side of the path is covered with little wildflowers. Wouldn’t you love a purple and yellow lawn? I think that would be cool.
I was feeling a little fatigued, which has been the status quo as of late. I was concerned about hills today, but I ended up okay.
We reached the peak point and could see all these cars backed up forever.
This is near the outlet mall, which always gets a lot of traffic. Traffic is not well managed in this particular area. Good thing we were sailing over it!
It was pretty much a perfect biking day. In the upper 70s and little to no wind.
We just walked around a bit at the lake. Not long. It wasn’t actually super crowded at the lake, but that could be because it was opening weekend for the Saratoga race track.
Unlicensed Walter White sighting:
Lots of tacky/touristy stuff in Lake George.
We decided to take our ride snack back in Glens Falls at Spot! So, it was time to start the climb. Once you get into the Adirondacks, the path is cool and beautiful.
We stopped by the marsh so I could take pictures of water lilies.
This was around 42 miles for the day when we stopped for the snack (15 of which came before lunch).
Yummers! Love those ride treats! It was a quick ride home from there. When we aren’t on the path, this is a lot of what we ride on.
Total miles: 48.3 miles

This was a nice way to get in this many miles with a morning ride and an after lunch ride. That way I wasn’t dragging at the end. Then we had to get cleaned up and head out to the movies!
Quality time with my sis:
I have a big head LOL! Planet of the Apes was an intense movie. Really intense. Very violent, too. I think I liked it. I was exhausted when it was finished. I have seen 2 movies in the theater in 2014, which is double the quota I went to in 2013. I’m on a roll! :D
