Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Not many big hills out here but there are some hilly sections along the river road around Cayuga to Caledonia.
What year did you go to Cayuga, Rousseau ? I graduated in 1982.

Pine creek and Lake Sabrina / South Lake are just about the only climbs I didn't hit last September. Looks amazing - I'll now have to go back!
