This was a new big loop using out from my Lake route and coming back on my Lockport route.  Really had no idea exactly how far it was going to be, but this was about right.  I was guessing about 48 miles, but actually a few more.  Many ways to stretch this one further as well if I so choose too in the future.  Also gives me a good option for later in the year instead of just the Lake route when it's too dark to go down the Lockport escarpment.  Just too dangerous because of the road conditions there.

The ride itself wasn't too bad, although a bit slow.  Mostly just LSD without really a lot of hard work even coming up the escarpment.  My heart rate just was steady the whole way.  No sure exactly what's going on with that as I didn't feel like I was flat.  [Map]
