    UPDATE as of 7/11:  I checked out the extended path, so I can confidently post this as a 26 mile ride.  I've also been contacted by a group member who stated that he does the path and boardwalk weekly and both (the path and boardwalk) are crowded on the weekends. The pace may come in at a "c" pace due to the wind I experienced as well as the anticipation for the crowded bike path and boardwalk.  If you decide to do this ride, please be prepared for frequent stops and a slower pace.  With that said, if you have something on your calendar for the early afternoon, you might want to think twice on doing this ride.  If this is the case, please be assured that we'll post this again because it's a safe and fun ride.  I truly want everyone to enjoy and not feel rushed doing this ride, the path is beautiful and absolutely worth every minute of riding.

    Since there's a charge for parking in Cedar Creek Park, I'll be parking along Cedar Street...an address you can use for your GPS is 2531 Cedar Street, Seaford NY, I'll be alongside the park across the street from the condos.  If you decide to go into the park, please meet us at the restrooms by the statue of the bike rider, this is the restroom before the bike path entrance. 

    If you haven't already been on this path, it's a really nice ride with two slight inclines.  This is a shared path with families and rollerbladers, we'll maintain a C/C+ pace.  We'll stop off at the concession stand, which will have a variety of items to chose from, including hot dogs, ice cream, fruit or water...please bring enough drinks to stay hydrated or money in case you decide to purchase anything on the beach.  Air up your tires, put on your helmet and load up on the sun screen because it's going to be a great morning to ride!

    Please post any questions you may have regarding this ride on this ride post and I'll respond as quickly as possible...thank you for reading this lengthy post!  LOL!
