89 miles, 2717 feet climbed
Today a steady rain began as we left the hotel and continued for at least two hours. We rode only the first 5 or so miles of the Erie Canal trail and then diverted to Route 31 for 60 miles or so. With the rain and needing to keep moving, I took only a few photos.
At the second SAG stop, Karen showed me the future weather radar track of a heavier storm. That incentivized me to put my head down and make some speed for our hotel. I just about made it when light rains began to fall again, but was able to watch the heavier rains from the lobby.
As I was cleaning my bike, I noticed that my rear tire was soft. When I squeezed it, water was coming out of the tread. It was definitely time to replace the tire and I did at the mechanics session.
