There is a new boardwalk across the road from the preserve that has three different lovely paths.  Total walk time is about 15 minutes, so bring a a pair of light sneakers or tongs, so you don't have to be uncomfortable in your bike shoes.  If you have a bike lock, bring it, otherwise,  I have 3 locks to share.   There will be a bathroom stop at mile 9, another at the preserve, and a snack stop at the Westhampton Bakery.  For info: contact Bill G. at 631-356-3036.  Check the ride calendar the day of the ride for changes, which would be posted by 07:15am.  Strong winds could slow our pace, and possibly reduce our mileage.

Details (RL read field instructions carefully): 

Ride start is 9:30am. 

This ride is now going from Port Jefferson Station to Poquott, Strong's Neck, Old Field and West Meadow...the tradtitional "Roller Coaster" route in between it all.  Note: I have reclassified the pace to B- (14-14.7). 

Meet at the eastern end of the parking lot (bagel shop side vs. bank side).  There used to be a clothing donation bin near Rt. 347 as a meeting marker but its gone now.  So use your judgement when you arrive and I'll find you!  I'll be riding from home and will be there @9:15am.

____________________________

Wed 3:40pm Update:  Weather is kicking up here, radar showing strong storms to move through later.  Given the "fun" of getting caught out there with some rain and thunder a few weeks ago, I am moving this ride to tomorrow morning.  Check back tonight for the revised details as start location, mileage and pace will change. 

_________________________

Sunset is at 7:20pm...so we will be leaving promptly at 5:30pm.  Please plan accordingly.   Parking note:  Parking may be tight at the Stony Brook RR lot now.  If there isn't a spot, you can park in back of Sterling National Bank, just past the Quaker Path traffic light, and meet us in the RR parking lot. 

Bring lights if you have them and wear brighter clothing.

_________________________

Join us as we travel scenic backroads thru the Stony Brook-Setauket area: historic places, great views, great sunsets, great folks. We are a diverse group out for an enjoyable ride and fun nite.  

The ride classification takes into account the rolling/hill route, often finishing around 13.1-13.7. There are wait ups after climbs and places to stretch your legs ahead... but please note this is not a "race ride".  Dinner afterwards for those interested.

Check ride calendar for any changes or cancellations by 4:00pm the day of ride.

**Please note- Mike Cochran will be leading this ride**

We will head North for 23 mile loop around the Dix Hills area. The day light hours are getting shorter so as result we will be doing shorter routes.  I will suggest that everyone have at least a tail light and a head light if possible. Please pack hydration and snacks for quick stops along the route.

This is a B/B+ ride with an average pace between 16 to 17 mph+/-, depending on the road conditions and wind direction. The road speed will be between 17 and 20 mph. Total mileage may vary +/- a few miles depending on daylight and weather conditions.

Please check the ride calendar for any weather, or last minute cancellations. My cell number is 347-677-4164; call or text anytime if you have questions about the ride or need directions to the start location.
