SORRY, BUT THE RIDE IS NOW FULL

HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY - wear your Red/White/Blue SBRA Jersey, if you have one!

Join me for this C+/B- ride, which will average 13.6 - 14.0. This is my new route (slightly different from the one I followed on May 9th) and the distance will be around 26 to 27. As such, there will not be a cue sheet, and weather/wind could determine changes to the route. We will take our break at the Timber Point Golf Course, where snacks and bathrooms are available. No one gets dropped and we will be observing spacing rules, etc.

Park on the south side of the train station.

Please arrive at least 15 minutes before the ride start, to allow enough time for me to get everyone signed in and to "get yourself" ready.

NOTE #1You must be a club member to go on club rides.

NOTE #2: rides at this time are limited. You MUST text me with your Name, SBRA Member Number, and Emergency Contact phone number if you want to ride. I will return the text: YES, you have a spot…orNO, Ride Filled...CELL #: 631-523-2129

Join me on Memorial Day for the Lake Tour ride where we tour Eastern Suffolk County's 3 "Great Lakes":  Panamoka, Peconic, and Wildwood Lake (town of S.Hampton). This is a B+ ride that will cruise at a steady and smooth 20 mph with exceptions for hills (Up: slower, Down: faster) and wind (in our face: slower, at our backs: faster).

Note:  Memorial Day is a day where you can dig out that old patriotic jersey or kit (that you wear only once a year) and proudly display it on the pace line. I have one and I'll be wearing it. The rest stop will be at Wildwood lake town park which has a clean porta potty, and maybe the actual bathrooms might be open for business. I don't usually have a Sweep on the ride but we will have waitups (where appropriate) if someone drops off the back. The last waitup will be on Mill Rd. at the Halsey Manor/Connecticut Ave intersection (stop sign). Please remember this is a B+ class ride where we will cruise at a steady and smooth 20 mph.

They say you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink.  But maybe you can lead some riders to Briermere Farms.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Vpov5SOTEI  So let's meet at the South Street School, and use the side lot near the electronic sign for a ride onto the North Fork.

This time around, we will keep this as a moderate-paced paceline ride at a B/B+ pace  -> some of us have to go to work tomorrow.  That means no raising the pace, no dropping anyone and working together. The route will take us out on the north route and  bring us back through the Pine Barrens.  And of course we'll have that stop in Briermere..

So, if you tired of the same old routes, or want to ride without stopping every five minutes for a traffic light, you're welcome to join us. Those of you who want to try a faster ride are welcome, too - just don't try to hijack this ride!

Allons-y! (Let's go!)

Time changed to 9:30 to give the roads a chance to dry a bit. I will text those that told me they were coming of the time change.

 

I am putting this ride up with the route to be decided later on in the week. I am posting it as a B/B+ for the ride as it might be a recovery ride after riding for the past couple of days. Please text if you are coming and watch for any updates towards the end of the week.

Details (RL read field instructions carefully): 

This is a not so serious ride, but it's a challenge. Come test out the limits of your gravel bike. Those that do not have one this is also very friendly to mountain and fat bikes. Please bring plenty of water and nutrition. There will be waits ups, no public bathrooms on this ride, no official rest stop. 

There will be sand, gravel, dirt, roots, rocks, minimal pavement involved. I would say that 90% of the ride is trail. Just a FYI, this is a multi use trail so we will yield to horses and pedestrians if encountered. 

Wider tires are recommended.

I am estimating the mileage, it could be + / or minus a few. I will actually put a computer on my bike so that it will be accurate the day of.

I posted this as a B/B+, in no way are we coming in at that average, it's more for the level of difficulty.

Light rain rain will not cancel this ride!

Please email if you have any questions.

DUE TO CONSIST RAIN I AM MOVING THE START TIME TO 9:30AM TO ALLOW TIME FOR THE ROADS TO DRY AND EVERYONE'S SAFETY

If you would like to join this ride please text me - 516-983-4827  I need your name, SBRA #, emerg cell #  That way I can prefill the ride sign in sheet. Wheels down and rolling at 9:30am for a ride to Smithspoint Beach and back. We will stop for refreshment somewhere along the ride. There will also be a bathroom stop at Wertheim around mile 13. Depending on the wind and direction we should average 15.5-16.0 mph a bit faster than previous rides. Of course in order to obtain this average at times our road speed could be 15-19 mph.

Please check ride calendar at 7:30am day of ride for go or no go incase of issues which would prevent me from riding or bad weather.
