The planned route and profile
The actual route and profile ridden.
Ben's Schwinn with the nice handlebar tape. Very proper for Valentine's.
Me and my racing bike adapted for the longer haul. The top tube brevet bag carries a cell phone and my camera.
Ben meeting me after a descent where SR79 meets SR 227.
The Main Street Bike Shop in Burdett, NY. I have to get one of these when I have my own home, eventually.
On the descent into Watkins Glen
Cargill in Watkins Glen. I was always amazed at how a factory can be located on the waterfront. It's terrifying.
That's Bill Fischer climbing out of Watkins Glen. We met him there just past 9am.
Ben Kraft ahead.
Townsend Road, after the climb out of Watkins Glen.
Tribute to those who did not survive the climb.
Lamoka Lake and Waneta Lake in the distance.
And Bill makes it up the climb.
Bill is followed by Ben.
Alongside Lamoka Lake
Lamoka Lake again. There were some people ice fishing on the lake.
I thought this was amusing (CR 87).
Bill on CR87
Descending into Hammondsport - Keuka Lake
Me in my Rapha Cap. I think it looks pretty cool. Lunch stop at Hammondsport.
Ben and Bill enjoying the break.,
Me again, now enjoying a delicious $3 sub.
A friendly place.
Getting ready to go. There's a climb waiting for us!
One last view of Hammondsport. If it were a bit warmer I would definetely take a swim break.
View of Keuka Lake from CR76
Ben makes it up the climb.
This is my favorite ride, so many beautiful views.
The day was gorgeous.
A closer view of Keuka Lake. By this time Ben and Bill were out of sight. Time to catch up!
Many drivers seem not to understand this sign. We had a few close calls.
No sign of Lance here.
We met this friendly and beautiful horse. I fed it a carrot.
View of Keuka Lake leaving Branchport.
Amish carriage on SR14A
Our last stop, on the way back in Watkins Glen. This is the bathroom of a small green grocery store. It has to be the smallest bathroom in the world.
Toilet paper holder.
The front and back of the bathroom in one shot.
