Hicksville+ aka Raimo Ride
This ride was a 5BBC mainstay led by Liz and Ed who have since left NYC. Queens to Hicksville is revived with some route changes. We will ride hard on the Horace Harding East for 15 miles before taking the S. Oyster Bay Road exit. We go to Raimo’s Pizza (rated 4.5 on the Gong scale) for our lunch break. On the loop back we ride suburban local roads to the Broadway Mall on our way to Cantiague Park for a rest/nature stop. Return is IU Willets with some beautiful estate homes and the 88th Road/tunnel in Floral Park. There will be some shunts or bypasses that you may have never ridden. My surprise!
This is a 35 mile suburban street ride averaging 12mph with 1000 ft of elevation.
Exact start location, RWG, map/cue to be emailed 3 days before the ride. All riders should come equipped with a mask, hand sanitizer, a spare tube, sunscreen, snacks, hydration, and a bike in good condition.
Important: Please ‘unregister’ in a timely manner if you can no longer make the ride. This will allow others on the waitlist to participate. Please do not register if you do not intend to ride the complete route. This action would deprive a fellow member the opportunity to ride the complete route.
