Morning's ride

I'm attaching some pics from my morning's ride in upstate NY: across the Stony Creek Reservoir, through the town of Vischer Ferry, past a ghost bike, then a grange hall, an old tavern, and a Baptist church that could have fallen out of a Ralph Stanley song. Beautiful late summer day.

It's raining here so I'm glad to see someone was able to get out and enjoy some great riding weather. Nice pictures

I tried to blow up the picture of the ghost bike to read the sign, but couldn't make it out. Do you remember what it says? Is it a story in itself?

These are roads I ride all the time - Apologist must be my neighbor. The ghost bike is for a man I worked with named David Ryan - we now call this 30 mile ride the Ryan loop. He was actually a brit here in the colonies - left a wife and kids. He was killed when two kids were drag racing down this windy road. The Ryan loop is one of my favorite rides. Here is a post from last fall - shows the same ghost bike + some more pics from the Ryan loop: Ride Pics

Thanks for reminding me of the details about David Ryan. And for the link to the pics of the loop along the Mohawk.

No problem - I enjoy riding along the Mohawk and the hills of Glennville - are you riding any of the MHCC club rides this weekend - I know today is a washout but tomorrow should be great - I am planning on the Century.

Good luck on your ride today. It is beautiful. I'm going to try to get my youngest son out for a spin later. I'm really just back to the bike seriously this year, and I haven't gotten involved with the MHCC yet. Next year, maybe?
