Mohawk Valley "Grades are in" Ride - May 15, 2013

[Crop/Zoom: 894x979]

[Crop/Zoom: 242x486]

Heading west toward Utica. [Larger: 1744x1308]

[Crop/Zoom: 556x796]

[Crop/Zoom: 579x416]

And now at 69, a road to Rome. [Crop/Zoom: 1443x448]

[Crop/Zoom: 2930x506]

[Crop/Zoom: 447x604]

[Crop/Zoom: 576x374]

[Crop/Zoom: 1042x773]

[Crop/Zoom: 589x546]

[Crop/Zoom: 620x462]

Cutting down 825. [Crop/Zoom: 430x623]

[Crop/Zoom: 1581x1136]

825 ends here. This sign is deceiving. I wanted 365 East from here. How do I do that? I ended up on 49 East, with no exit to switch back for a few miles. [Crop/Zoom: 541x879]

So here's the ride out 49 East. [Crop/Zoom: 599x447]

[Crop/Zoom: 752x613]

[Crop/Zoom: 780x668]

[Crop/Zoom: 754x1718]

Looking for some new roads - never been on 170 before. [Crop/Zoom: 1038x1481]

[Crop/Zoom: 555x590]

[Crop/Zoom: 457x648]

Or 170A. [Crop/Zoom: 220x282]

[Crop/Zoom: 515x612]

[Crop/Zoom: 431x591]
