Rode around Tupper Lake looking at various bits of railroad remains. There's a TON of old New York & Ottawa rails still on the ground but completely disconnected from the main line.

Rode up to Lake George from Glens Falls on the Warren County Bikeway. I did this almost a decade ago, but didn't take or else lost the GPS track from it.

Rode the Zim Smith Trail again, only this time they finished the construction on the north end, so it's longer.

Down to Hannawa Falls and back, but I also went in to the Sugar Island power generation plant to see where the Hannawa Falls Railroad might have run. My conclusion: along the route of the penstock. The road beside it is just too hilly.

Rode out to Moira on the Rutland Trail, and back on US-11. Almost 50 miles. Awesome. I'm a little tired, but I could have kept going.

Went over past the Allen's Falls road, into town, and back out again. Stopped to visit a little farm road that looks like it goes through.

Boy, my rides are getting shorter and shorter, but that's only because I've bbeen coming home later and later. Need to come home early enough to be able to do another 40-miler.

27 miles seems like a decent ride. Not too long, not too short.

20.61 km 67629.25 feet 12.81 mi 9759.00 seconds 162.65 minutes 2.71 hours 4.72 mi/hr

Went up to Norwood to catch a train carrying windmill blades, each two flatcars long. One of the flat cars carries no weight -- and is just there as a spacer. The entire train was 6000' long, and fully half of it was empty flatcars. The train came from out west, and still have its Union Pacific power (two). They were handing off the train to the New York & Ogdensburg, which was hauling the blades to its port in Ogdensburg. From there, the blades were transferred to trucks.

I don't know how fast they were running most of the trip, but when they were pulling the train into the yard, they were only going 7 miles/hour.

The lawnmower needed a belt which wasn't in stock at our Tractor Supply store, and the one in Massena had it. Rather than ruin my bicycle ride by driving up to get it, I decided that the bicycle ride would BE going up to get it.

Rode on US-11 out to CR-47. Was going to go all the way down to US-11B, but I started to run out of daylight, plus the clouds which had rained earlier were starting to threaten. The ground is very saturated with water this spring.
