Life and adventures from a high school perspective
An avid cyclist, rock climber, and all around adventurer, Francis Davis is taking to the internet to share his stories of cycling, climbing, and adventuring.
It was another uneventful day of sorts. The roads, as we descend from mountainous New York, are not only becoming much flatter but also trending downhill towards Lake Ontario. This is both a blessing and a curse; I prefer the mountainous landscape to looking at farmland. On the other hand, flat means fast, and easy.
Mall of the cities so far in New York past Inlet have been supremely underwhelming as well. Without tourism or another apparent economic driver, these towns aren’t doing well. It’s a bummer.
On to the more interesting part of the day. We had a cycling companion at the nights WarmShowers, Trip. He was interesting. He rode a recumbent with quite a bit of luggage (pictures attached). Even though he rode slow we caught up with him and passed him several times, and he zoomed by our stopped bikes as we stopped for refreshments.
Secondly, the campground we stayed at was super cool. Stysh’s Brown Barn offered lawn space, a communal basement, kitchen, and showers for $7 / cyclist. It was great. Their were even arcade games in the basement. Mark, being a 90s kid, nerded out.
