    Details (RL read field instructions carefully): 

     

    We will be riding from Patchogue to Montauk and taking the LIRR back.  Route will be similar to SBRA’s annual Montauk Century ride but starting from Patchogue instead of Babylon.  Route is very scenic and we try to avoid big roads whenever possible.

    Train departs Montauk at 2:48pm and arrives back in Patchogue at 4:43pm.  For those wishing to spend the day in Montauk, the next train leaves Montauk at 10:05pm and arrives Patchogue at 11:52pm.

    I suggest riders bring two water bottles, some energy snacks and extra $$ for rest stops/lunch/train fare.  We will make hydration/rest stops approximately every 20-25 miles.  Depending on when we arrive in Montauk (and what shape we're in when we get there - lol) we can discuss some options (extend ride to lighthouse, sit-down lunch in town, buy deli sandwiches and eat on train, Gosman's Dock, etc.).

    Any changes will be posted by 6am.

    If you are interested in this ride or have any questions, please let me know by 9pm Wed.  FYI - The LIRR has the right to limit the number of bikes they allow on each train so I need to get a rough headcount.  Please call or txt my cell (347-922-3824).  I’ve done this ride several times and never had a problem with the LIRR, but you never know. 

    Special note: Riders will need a Bike Permit so you can bring your bike on the train.  The permit cost is $5 but it is good for life (unless you lose it) and it can be purchased on the train without a penalty fee.  You will also need to purchase a one-way off-peak ticket for the ride home (approx $10) and should be purchased prior to boarding to avoid penalty fee.  LIRR ticket machine is located at the station.
