We also had lunch with our family, Mark and Margee, on the Erie canal. This was very cool and it was a blessing to see them. Mark has been my ride surgeon for the journey. Thank you!
Mark also informed me that there was a bike path on the Erie Canal, which goes all the way to Albany. So I tried it out for about 10 or 12 miles, but it wasn't paved and really slowed me down. So I jumped on Route 31 and this turned out to be a very good cycling route.
So today's ride was split because we started on US Route 20, then hopped in the car for the appointments, then continued the ride from our lunch spot on the canal. This added a few riding miles but made a nice variation vs. heading straight east on Route 20. Today's miles totaled 87 and was tracked in two sections, pre-appointments and post-appointments. Heres the map link for the first section, and here is the map link for the second leg.
Today was a varied, fun, and long day. I rode until almost sunset this evening.
