Amsterdam to Albany

Done!
Wow πŸ˜„, what a great πŸ€™πŸ» day β˜€οΈ to end πŸ›‘πŸš³ this segment of our journey 🌎! We got an early start out of the Fright’s Inn and started east, pretty much immediately getting onto the bike path along the canal and following it for 40 miles or so. We were done βœ… by lunch! 

One of the easiest and fastest days of the whole ride. It was in the seventies and the sun was beautifully dappled through the trees along the path, which was an old train  route. We might have climbed three hills of note all day. A total dream of a day. 

We got lunch in Albany before realizing that we’d actually arrived in Albany – we went way faster then we thought, even after making a pit stop to fix an issue with our rear tire. The bike is safely put away at Broadway Bikes in the north end of the city, where it awaits our return towards the end of August! 

The end really is in sight now. From here on out, we can probably ditch our saddle bags and make day trips to edge closer to Newport. This is so exciting! 
On the outskirts of Albany. 

The photo doesn’t do justice to the amazing view of the canal we had from the top of this hill! Nor does it show how tall the hill is – we absolutely bombed down it. 

Pretty New York towns. 

It’s rained for 22 days in the last month. All the gates are open at all the locks along the canal, and boat traffic is shut down! 

See ya later, New York.
