Yesterday we went on our first bicycle ride this year outside of Warren. We transported our bicycles to the Quaker Run area of Allegany State Park.
We met our friend Liz at the Quaker General Store. The three of us rode the new Quaker Run Multi-Use Trail (3.2 miles round trip). We didn’t realize that the trail from the Quaker General Store to the Taft Cabin was a slight uphill climb, until we turned around and began our ride back to the Quaker Store. We coasted most of the way back to the Quaker Store.
The new Quaker Run Multi-Use Trail is being built in two phases. We rode on Phase 1 of the trail. The second phase of the trail has begun and will run from the Quaker General Store to the Quaker Lake Beach. When completed, the trail will run over 5 miles. We are looking forward to the completion of this trail!
When we finished bicycling the Quaker Run Multi-Use Trail, we transported our bicycles to the Red House area and bicycled around Red House Lake (a 3-mile loop). This trail was somewhat more strenuous, as there were definite hills to ride (or walk) up. Borrowing the words from a friend “I was feeling my winter inactivity by the time we got done.” (Thank you for the suitable choice of words, Jim R.)
Total bicycle miles ridden: 6.27 miles.
This is a video that Bob took with our GoPro7 camera during our bicycle ride.
It was nice to see Liz again. It had been more than 15 years since we saw each other. We have seen Larry (Liz’s husband), though. Larry sells automobiles. We have purchased two cars from him. We hope that both Larry and Liz can join us on a bicycle ride in the near future.
