Leaving Hollyloft Ski & Bike, we drove to Allegany State Park near Salamanca NY. We entered the park via the Quaker Lake entrance. Our first stop was at the Quaker General Store, where we ate a light dinner. Bob had a BLT wrap; my dinner was a hot dog.
After dinner we drove to the Red House Lake Beach parking lot.
We rode around Red House Lake (a distance of approximately 3 miles).
I believe the temperature, which was in the mid to upper 80s, the hot sunshine, and what I wore to ride caused me to be grounded a couple times during our ride. I wore jeans and a t-shirt. I believe I got overheated. I felt weak, faint. I was breathing heavier than normal, finding it difficult to catch my breath. My chest hurt too, although that may have been caused by indigestion.
This wasn’t the best ride, but I do really LOVE my new bicycle!
