    Details (RL read field instructions carefully): 

    PLEASE READ:

    ROUTE: We will take off from Riverhead waterfront behind Twin Fork Bicycles and proceed to a course that will take us through Southampton and up to Sag Harbor. We will be crossing over from south to north by way of Shelter Island, including Ram Island. Once in Greenport, lunch will be at the deli or pizzeria near the ferry (like last week). After lunch, we head west back to Riverhead using a similar route as last week.

    STOPS: There will be multiple stops along the route and one long break in Greenport at mile 50.

    BATHROOMS: Finding bathrooms is always a chore, especially with large groups. I did the best I could in this regard.

    You will NEED:

       Money for south and north ferries and lunch.

       Water

       Snacks

       Sun Screen

       ENERGY Cool 

    SPEED: I am posting the ride as a slow B/B+ but if the wind is an issue the average may be in the fast B area. Cruising speed, depending on wind speed and direction will be around 16-17 mph. Naturally, tailwind and downhills will increase the top number.

    MODIFIED PACELINE: It doesn’t make a difference how long you pull. A short pull also helps the group. Let’s make the exchange at 5 miles or LESS. Wheel behind a wheel, and don't cover a wheel.

    EVERYONE IS EXPECTED TO MONITOR THEIR OWN SPEED AND THE LOCATION OF THOSE BEHIND THEM TO AVOID HAVING LARGE SPACES BETWEEN RIDERS.

    If you can, please download the route onto your Garmin, iPhone, etc.

    FINALLY: Based on feedback I've been getting, there may be a lot of riders this week, so the ride may be split. If there needs to be two groups, Tim Mayr will lead the other group.

    Please check back.
