Another Weekday Scout - Smith Point
So far the weekday rides have been a success with some of them just rides and some of them scouts or partial scouts. This one is a partial scout for the TWA Flight 800 Memorial ride scheduled for April 28th. The weather for Friday looks good. Lots of this ride is brand new and hence a true scout as we try to to determine the scenic value of the ride, the suitability of roads, potential rest rooms and food stops. I am sure we will make some wrong turns, both accidentally and deliberately as we explore. the ride is 50-55 mostly flat miles (elevation gain is 800+ feet only) Ride will meet at 10:30ish on the south side of the large parking lot at the Ronkonkoma LIRR train station by the ticket machines. There is a train scheduled to arrive at Ronkonkama at 10;37. We will end the ride in Ronkonkoma for those training back. For those driving, we meet in the south parking lot which is huge and it gets crowded but there are always spots somewhere. Parking is free. Any questions, email me.
