Bard Alumni Bike Ride

For our 45th reunion (class of 1965) Pargy and I decided to join the Alumni Bike Ride organized by Dan Tieger and the Bicycle Club Kingston under the leadership of Jim King. Jim coaches the Bard cycling team. Who knew there was such a thing?

We negotiated a detour for a closed bridge on 9G and arrived on campus behind Ludlow just about quarter of 10. There were a couple of other alumns and SOs.

Half-Way Rest Stop.

Pargy, Phone Home.

When we got back to campus, we rolled up Annandale Road where the procession was forming up. We both felt tired and spacey. The day was perfect -- a cloud cover, warm, but not too warm, with mostly friendly fellow road users. The back roads north of Red Hook are great. There are some good climbs on the way to Lake Taghkanic. On the way back Pargy opted to go over Turkey Hill, which he said wasn't much worse than what we had already ridden, and not a tough as the hills around Monterey, where he lives.
