    Got out for a couple hours around town. Few stop signs and no stop lights, so no stopping to take photos until I got home. I miss my old coffee spots in the city, but there is something nice about post-ride espresso in my own yard.

    [QUOTE=htwoopup;957737]While in Cuba a few years ago, we met a family from Saratoga Springs NY. As we got to know them, we learned that they had lost a son to a brain tumor when the boy was not quite 13. So, they do an annual fundraiser for research in his honor. This was the third year that my wife and I did the ride (the 25 mile version).

    It poured rain for the first ten miles. But Saratoga is beautiful for the marvelously maintained 1800's houses and very well maintained farms and homes outside of the town proper. I don't do pictures as well as you all, and it was monsooning for a bit so all I can say is there was a lot of this...

    Jon, you definitely do pictures as well or better than I do! Thanks for the post. My dad grew up in Saratoga Springs and when I was an elementary-school-age kid, he took me to visit his mom in Saratoga. Since I am almost 67, that was a boatload of years ago. We went to the springs and I could not stand the taste. That mineral water taste was not appealing to this ten or eleven year old kid. Thanks.

    I hope you've opened her some accounts with that name for when she's a little older.
