Albany the hard way, and a bit of Colonie
- Begins in:
- Albany, NY
- Created By:
- Some of the nastier streets of Albany, but done in the safest way possible. Western Ave. sucks. Lincoln is a great alternative to Washington. Central is hella busy, but the pavement was just done last year so it's smooth and nice. Once you're to the Crossings (bathroom stop!) it's less traffic through the burbs and out the also-freshly paved Old Niskayuna Road. Once you cross 9, the shoulder is horrible and the traffic unforgiving until you get to the cemetery. This also includes a side trip to The Down Tube, because I forgot to grab my saddle bag when I switched bikes, and needed a patch and tube just in case.
