    Details (RL read field instructions carefully): 

    Wed nite update: 

    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 @8:45am.

    ________________________________

    8/7 4pm:  Ominous dark clouds, gusty wind and current radar of what is coming this way means that the ride tonight is a "no-go".  But I will be riding in the morning - 9am out of Port Jefferson Home goods.  Will update the ride and details later.   Note for next week:  I will post, but daylight is shifting and the ride start will be at 5:45pm, so please plan accordingly. 

    8/7 a.m. update:  weather looking pretty unsettled again this Wednesday (sigh...).  I'll monitor later this afternoon and make a decision by 4:30pm, so check back here then.

    Please note:  If the ride is a no-go tonight, I'll move it to tomorrow morning from PJ Station/Home Goods.  Will be a bit more mileage and likely start at 9am., but will post details later if need be.

    The ride classification takes into account the rolling/hill route, often finishing around 12.7-13.4. 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.
