If you're due for a spinal adjustment, you should check out the new mountain bike trails at Dryer Park in Victor. Rick Williams and Scott Likly are working with the town of Victor and a bunch of hardcore volunteers to carve out trails for dirt lovers only.
Don't let the fact that these are the area's only *legal* trails fool you into thinking you're in for a summer stroll. True, you'll take in some of the most scenic hilltop views this side of Tuscany. And yes, some of the trail names sound like they were lifted from your seven-year-old's xmas list (I-Pod, Ribbon Candy, Ziggy), but trust me. Your ass will be grass after a spin on these bonecrushing dirtlines.

I was hit by a bus this morning. Not only that, but my kid was actually on it.
I was in the bike lane, and the bus was making a right hand turn. The driver didn't see me and I didn't see that her blinker was on.
It really didn't even hurt. And not a scratch on the bike! Whew!

Alas, he did not show.
Well, not really. And it's old. But you might see men in skirts, and you will see some stunning gardens. Oh, I really hope the rain holds off!
Linwood is a beautiful old country estate. It was once the summer home of a Buffalo industrialist whose son got into tree peony hybridizing. If you have read Shirley Jackson's "We Have Always Lived in the Castle" you will be familiar with the vibe.
