Short Cycle: Jones Beach Area Bike Paths

 

Yes, Again!   Exploratory ride, starting from a LIRR station devoted to check out this wonderful Nassau County, Long Island greenway to the sea, it’s expansion & a glimpse of future ones. We’ll start on the Ellen Farrant Memorial Bikeway along the Wantagh State Parkway. Then to the Jones Beach Bike Path, boardwalks on the western flank and careen east to Ocean Parkway Coastal Greenway Shared Path to Tobay Beach. We’ll get a sneak look see of the planned extension of the Path to Captree State Park. On a subsequent ride in 2021, we and/or another 5BBC ride will go to that extension when it opens. This will be a Happy Face ride. Leader will ride a folder bike to maintain pace. 

 

Ride a bicycle in good working condition. 

 

Bring a) MTA Bicycle Permit b) snack and/or sandwich during halfway point c) bungee cord to secure bike on train. Plus bring the usual spare tube, full water bottles, lights, helmet, your mask and sanitizer. Maybe a camera for photo taking. And one more thing: bring your fun attitude and your love for exploring. 

 

The first 8 (eight, that's right, 8) people signed up gets an email with further details.

 

Helmets are required on all 5BBC rides. Bring a spare tube. We're still in a pandemic so wear a face covering and keep social distance.

 

Ride could be canceled for bad weather; check your email before heading out.
