Ride starting Sat Sep 20 18:56:32 2008

8.90 km 29186.29 feet 5.53 mi 1872.00 seconds 31.20 minutes 0.52 hours 10.63 mi/hr

Went for a ride on the South Hill Recreation Way. It's part of a railroad switchback which went up the side of South Hill in Ithaca. The switchback was used to get down to the city level of Ithaca, while also being able to get through the hills surrounding the town. Other railroads went up on either side of Cayuga Lake, and another one went on the facing side of the valley from this ride.

The trail itself is very obviously a rail-trail except where they go from the bottom leg directly to the top leg without making use of the switchback. Oops. Rather steep there.
