Head East - Southold to Orient Point Loop
Well we tried, but forecast has gotten worse, so no alternative but to cancel.
Due to the weather this morning, the start has been moved to Noon in Greenport. Please email me if you are still coming.
There was a potential LIRR issue on the Montauk ride, so we decided to postpone that ride, but still have an East End Ride, just changing forks and points.
Let's head out east for a late season ride, a Southold to Orient Point scenic half century loop. The ride will meet at 11:00 at the Southold LIRR station parking lot along the Greenport branch. The start will time allow folks time to get out there by car and carpools or via the LIRR. There is an LIRR train to Southold leaving Penn Station at 8:12 (requires transfer at Ronkonkoma). Check LIRR for times from other stations including Atlantic Terminal.
The ride is around 50, mostly scenic, miles, including some beautiful water views. Ride is advanced moderate as we will keep a steady pace to get those on train back on time.
IMPORTANT RIDE REQUIREMENTS: you must register for the ride AND contact me directly in order to participate. Feel free to contact me with questions. If you have a car and can take someone (or more than one person) and their bike, PLEASE, PLEASE CONTACT ME, as we have folks who would like to get a ride out and/or back).
Please bring the usual for your bike, lunch money, as well as snacks, since we are not sure about lunch timing. Please also bring plenty of water, money for the train and an upbeat inquisitive attitude.
