    Stayed up til 1 AM attempting to fix bike. When I took inner tube out of box (bought 2005) the smell of the rubber caused breathing problems & exasperated my stabbing sore throat. I awoke 8:45 AM barely able to walk. I made salad for my lunch, got my clothing ready, but I'm crippled this morning after planting over 200 vegetable transplants & transporting family member to doctors after bad car crash last Saturday. I'm still in the I WANT TO GO mood. Have fun.

Thank you so much for truly wonderful experience.. oh, wait, how could I forget that we were greeted by all our chairs and bags waiting for us in a prime location... Thank you Peter and the other angels.

    Hi, I'm new to meetup and interested in coming to this. Are thier parking fees or restrictions at Jones Beach or Cedar Creek? How will I find everyone at Cedar Creek or are we on our own to find you on the beach? Is it a safe place to lock our bikes up or can we bring them on the beach with us? What if it rains is there transportation back to cedar creak?

      I did read it, sorry if I am new to this and my questions sound silly but almost none of my questions were answered in the description or by your vague response. Thank you for pointing out meeting in the "first lot on the left" I missed that one.

      May 23, 2014

    • Lori N.

    Just brought bike up out of basement for winter storage and tire is flat. I've got a bike kit I created for BIKE NY 2005 & have patches, tube, tools to fix tire, but have never done it. Without riding since I camped at Hither Hills & was going to join you in E. Hampton on Sept. 22 (washout flood canceled it) I'm out of condition. I have to meet all of you. Family member was T-boned last Sat. & I've been racing to MRI's, Doctors, etc. with him. I may not be able to ride tomorrow if I can't fix the bike. But I want to meet at Cedar Creek, and maybe get a ride to the beach, if possible. Let me see how far I get today.

  • Tammy

    I am not backing out yet but I went to the Doc today. Was given antibiotic. Sinus infection and ear infection. I am hoping the med school do their job bu Saturday but just giving a heads up ; ( i would really hate to miss this.

    I really appreciate this meetup being offered and allowing our chairs to be carried in the van... i am a bit nervous that i don't really know anyone (and it is not looking like my guests will actually be coming in from upstate to do this- i will update as soon as that is sure)... so i am not so 'good" at mixing with others who i do not know... is there anyone who would not mind hanging with me on the beach? i feel silly asking... but i know if i don't i might chicken out of going and i do think this is sure to be a great experience. let me know, anyone... thanks!!!

    May 21, 2014

    • Tammy

      Oh sorry, I just realized it is your guests that were coming from upstate, not you.

      May 22, 2014

    • Sharon M.

      Thank you Barry and Tammy!!! So nice to hear from the Event Host and a member!!! I already feel welcome. I am now really looking forward to it and meeting everyone!!!

      May 22, 2014

  • Ellen

    No worries Sharon. I am coming alone ( from nj)- it should be fun!

    Since it's been a wild for me going to the different jones beach parking lots, is Cedar Creek Park a regular parking lot? As I look it up online, I see that Cedar Creek Park is in Seaford. is That where I am heading to meet up with the group?
    Also, can the leader Plse provide his cell phone in case any of us are having hard times meeting up?
    Thanx,
    Ellen

    May 21, 2014

    • Sharon M.

      Ellen, Thank you so much for your reply... I hope you have a safe drive to Cedar Creek Park (yes it is in Seaford).
