Just a little ride on the Genesee Valley Greenway in the city of Rochester where it joins up with a former railbed. It sidles down the hill to a switchback, and also connects to a concrete plant up on the top of the hill.

Rode the Lehigh Valley Trail North, and the Lehigh Valley Trail. They meet at Rochester Junction. Started towards the north end of the North segment. Rode north until the trail petered out. Funny that there were no signs directing you to the continuation of the trail to the north, which I rode back in September 2010. Rode back to the trailhead, then down to Rochester Junction to pick up the LVT. Headed east ... hopefully to the end of the trail. Didn't make it that far; I had other things I wanted to do as well. I'll have to get to Victor anyway, because they have tons and tons of trails, some of them railtrails. Rode west back to Rochester Junction and then to the Genesee River where it meets up with the Genesee Valley Greenway.

Rode the railroad portion of the Pittsford Railroad Loop Trail. NOT very well marked! You can see that I had to wander around a while before I found the trailhead. Even then it's just a grass trail with no signage or improvements to speak of.

Bicycled the Rochester, Syracuse & Eastern railtrail on my way to the Rochester Airport. It starts in a park in Egypt, NY. Dead ends on the north at the Erie Canal. I think it used to cross, but the trolley line might have continued north along the canal. I didn't notice one way or the other. It dead-ends at a road on the west end. No idea why it doesn't continue. Probably property ownership issues, with a hostile landowner. :( It's a nice trail otherwise; stone dust the whole way.
