Lunchtime Ride: Colonie Town Park

Hey Mother Nature, I punch your
20 degree weather right in the head!
Was supposed to meet a couple of people for a lunchtime ride on Thursday but they left without me so I rode alone. Trails were in good shape. Icy in some spots but not impassable. Lots of frost heave which made the ride crunchy and bumpy. The leaves actually provided traction on some of the icy spots. It was pretty cold, about 22 degrees. But the sun was out and the trees sheltered me from the wind. My fingers were the only part of me that was cold, an extra set of gloves would have made the ride more comfortable. I rode for about 45 minutes and then headed back to work. Nice to get out and ride a bit more before the snow flies.
