Saturday (Feb 20) we rented a car and headed up to the Litchfield Hills of CT again. Just back over the border in NY State, we found this cute little town, MIllerton. it appears to be a lively place only 2hrs (160 km) N of NYC and best of all for us, it has the Rail Trail, an old railway line that has been converted into a recreation path. it is currently 16 km long but will eventually be 80 km long. we found a small cottage in a side street in town that is for rent for $900/month, so we are considering taking a year-long lease on it for a weekender.

Sunday was almost spring-like, sunny, 7C max, although a bit of a wind. We have a lot of catching up to do fitness-wise if we are to keep up when cycling in France in July, so we headed out for our first ride of 2010, 25km return trip to one of our favortie pizzerias, Motorino, in Williamsburg. Last week it was featured in the New York Times food section and voted 'best pizza in the city'; quite a call.cycling thru urban grunge of Long Island City (Queens) on the way to Williamsburg
