The Suffolk Bicycle Riders Association is Long Island's largest cycling club. Organized in 1977, we are a club made up of all ages and cycling abilities. Active members enjoy riding together year round in a relaxed and friendly group atmosphere. Our rides range from short, easy trips for beginners, to moderately-paced tours with snack breaks, to fast, challenging rides for the more competitive minded. Volunteer club members organize group rides, leaving from various locations throughout Mid-Suffolk and the East End. Their routes provide us a wonderful variety of places to tour and explore.

Once again, Long Island will be joining over 1500 cities in 40 countries around the world in celebrating Car Free Day on Tuesday, September 22, 2015, when people are encouraged to get around without cars and instead ride a train, bus, walk, bicycle, carpool, or just drive less. Last year, 2,855 Long Islanders pledged to be car free or car-lite, resulting in the avoidance of over 72,000 miles of driving and 36 tons of CO2 emissions.
SBRA is hosting the 2nd Annual Stoll & Roll Fund Raising Event to benefit the Guide Dog Foundation for the blind®. The foundation raises, trains, and furnishes guide dogs, free of charge, to people who are visually impaired or have other special needs, that seek the independence, mobility, and companionship a guide dog provides.
Leaving from the The RINX, Hidden Pond Park, 660 Terry Road, Hauppauge, NY, rides range from a 3 mile fun family ride to a challenging 75 mile ride. Depending on the length of the route, riders will tour Ronkonkoma, Holtsville, Yaphank, Rocky Point, and Wading River.
For the past 26 years SBRA hosted, the Guide Dog Foundation’s annual bike-a-thon, which has been one of their most popular events, and 2 years ago, their first Wag ‘n Walk dog walk had over 200 participants. Last year, we have combined these events to create the inaugural Guide Dog Foundation Stroll & Roll. On Sunday, September 27, 2015, please join us for this fun family, and pet friendly event to benefit the Guide Dog Foundation. Download the event brochure HERE, or visit: www.Stroll.GuideDog.org
