It's Never Too Late in the Season for a Big Ride (that's what she said)

A friend proposed we circumnavigate Seneca Lake a couple of weeks ago. Ooooh, so tempting, but a pretty long ride in the cold. Presto!  The weather improved substantially and it turned into a decent 50 degree day. 

A 15-20 mph headwind made going south a struggle, but when we turned around, WOW.  20 mph barely pedaling back north was sweeeeet!  The whole trip came in at just about 75 miles.
It's always nice to have people nudge you towards things you would normally not consider.

60 MPH wind gusts- amazingly took few trees out

I took a quick jaunt of 26 miles, thinking there would be a lot of downed trees, but it was not bad.  The streets had been cleared, but I found this poor willow downed on a bike path.
