7/31/15 Summary Day #47: The rain and humidity were gone today and all that was left were clear blue skies and 76 miles of pure tailwind! Aside from one mildly long climb today's route was primarily flat with the wind to our back as we continued along the Erie Canal. One highlight of the ride was watching a boat move through one of the locks on the canal. other than that it was mostly beautiful views and vistas along the roadways with the last 20 miles on a shaded bike path. What a nice afternoon. Tomorrow we head into the mountains.
