Riding to Thacher Park

Saturday I took my road bike out and rode up to Thacher from Schoolhouse Road in Guilderland. I haven’t done that ride in two years! The climb is always a bit intimidating but it wasn’t as bad as I was expecting! Love the feeling of seeing that sign when I get to the top.

Made a quick stop at the Overlook and grabbed a Gatorade from the snack stand.

I was going to take the same route back down, but after riding out past Thompson’s Lake I was pressed for time. I rode down to Altamont and took Route 20 (Western Ave) back to my car and rode a giant loop.

There was the longest hill I’ve ever rode down, and quite possibly the scariest, from Old Stage Road to Altamont. I’ll never try that again.
