Been A While But I Have Some Photos To Show Off

Looking North towards Lake Ontario

Fall is right around the corner in Western New York and I love riding my mountain bike in the fall and getting new photos.  I have not been taking many pictures lately on the rides because it is always the same area and nothing new to show the world.  Yesterday I got to sneak off to Ontario County Park again and was looking forward to some views that I have not seen in a while.

My Surly 1x1
 I rode the Single Speed today for a switch up.  I have put a lot of miles on geared bikes this year but not nearly enough on the single speed versions by any means.  Makes hill tougher than running gears but it is also a great gage of leg strength and overall bike fitness when you can power up some hills without bailing and walking (which happens enough trust me!)

Same view but with protective wall so you don't fall?
 I love Ontario County Park.  I had the whole place to myself.  One biker was coming in as I was prepping to leave but other than that I only heard the workers mowing the grass in the camping area, caught a glimpse of 2 people walking to the above overlook area from the road, and spooked about 3 or 4 deer up from the fall after lunch naps.

Canandaigua Lake
I was going to bring my road bike and do a 50+ mile loop around the above pictured lake but the forecast the night before called for afternoon rains so I decided to take the mountain bike instead.  They got the forecast wrong and I missed out on a beautiful day to ride around the lake.  Someday I will pull the trigger and go and do it.  Can't experience everything all at once - what else would there be to look forward to :)
