Today became a bit of an ordeal in Albany.
I started with breakfast at Crazy Otto’s Empire Diner.
I felt pretty tired and the first few miles were tough. I slow pedaled though the mini gorge at Little Falls
And on the other side there were a lot of downed trees. Coming into Amsterdam I had a flat tire so after I’d fixed it I googled a bike shop close to my route. I found one on Rt 5 in Schenectady and made a bee line for it. Resupplied with 700c x 25 tubes I rode through Albany’s rush hour traffic and managed to get onto the bike path across he Hudson.
I checked into my motel in East Greenbush and headed to the Super Buffet across the road and paid $11.90 for all you can each Chinese food, sushi, dim sum, cake, fruit and I’ve cream.
The motel is as far east as I can go so that I can climb up to Pittsfiedl and through the Berkshires tomorrow.
