Will meet at Overton East and hopefully ride that trail ... IF it's too muddy (i.e. rut producing) I will head over to BSP. I plan to do all the diamonds, including #5 (which I always miss by mistake) and Wild Turkey Loop (great downhill berm! ;-) BUT I will not yet do the Rock Pile or the steep drop of More Wild Turkey's Here.

Overton has a number of diamonds that are do-able by Intermediate riders ... Got 6 Minutes, BD #1, #2, #5, #6 (maybe ;-). There are waitups and the BD's always loop back to the Blue main.

Let's hope the trail is quiet and ...

Running late? PULL OVER and call my cell below ... we'll wait but make you feel lousy about it ...



-------------------------------------- Original Post ------------------------------------------------------

Sorry for the indecision. Watch for a posting after 5 tomorrow ... 

Watching the results of the weather. The possible venue has changed. It's going to be Overton or Brookhaven State Park. If we go to Overton and the trail is too wet I will get in my car and ride (20 minutes) to BSP (and hope you come along ;-). 

 East Setauket will NOT be dry enough to protect the trail. 

Overton is easier to reach on a weekend than on a weekday; Overton has a fertilizer plant on the east and a scrap metal plant on the west ... noisy except for Sundays .

Check back for another update later.

Class:

Type: 
Road Bike
Details (RL read field instructions carefully): 

Please park in the lot located on the north side of the station. The entrance is located at Parkside Blvd & Veterans Blvd.  No permit is required in this parking lot.  There's an entrance to the trail behind the parking lot.

This ride is mostly flat...with some hills, especially the closer we get to Plainview.  Since this is a shared bike path with pedestrians and other riders, a C+ should be a reasonable pace.  There will be a break in Bethpage Park before heading towards Plainview via the Bethpage Bikeway in Plainview.  Please bring ample snacks/water since there won't be a food stop.  There may be a possibility that the mileage can be increased to 24 miles.

It's off to Manorville. The average pace for the ride will be between 14.6 to 15.0 mph +/- depending on the roads, wind direction, rider ability or other conditions. Naturally, the road speed will be higher (15 -16.5 mph.) to produce the average. A rest/ food stop at McDonald’s or the bagel shop is on the schedule around mile 12. There are a few places along the route where leg stretches can be done for those who wish to do so. There is no obligation for anyone to do this; you can hang back with me. 

Please check the ride calendar for any weather, or last minute cancellations which will be posted no later than 8:00am, if necessary. My cell number is 631.484.3490; call or text me anytime if you have questions about the ride

No bathroom at Westbury HS ride start (there is a gas station on 25 just east of the H.S. & tressell walk bridge). If needed, I suggest you make a pit stop before you arrive. PLEASE BE FLEXIBLE, I'm slowing it down because of the possible messy roads & cold, personally I'm not a fan of cold. We are enjoying the ride & views. Jim Flanagan & I are working on a new route including some of my favorite places to ride on Nassau's Gold Coast. Front & back lights are highly recommended. A short rest stop about midway.

NEW DESTINATION, DISTANCE, AND AVERAGE PACE

May be another windy day, so I've changed the ride to go west from Bellport to Corey Beach. We will be able to duck out of the wind here and there, and hopefully have the wind to our back on the return leg of the ride. We will make a bathroom and deli stop along the way, as well has have a few views of the Great South Bay.  

This will be a low paced C+ ride, which will average 12.2 - 12.6.

Will stay warm on some hills and take in the views at both Long and Short beach.  Haven't done this ride in a looooong time, so ride will likely come in close to the 13 avg.   Please...this is not a "race" ride, but there will be places for folks to ride ahead at their pace.  We'll regroup after hill stretches so no one gets left behind. 

Check here by 9am on day of ride for any updates.
