Join us as we explore Oyster Bay, Matinecock, Muttontown, Upper Brookville, Syosset and Oyster Bay Cove! This ride is a popular cycling route, combining a few busy roads and some quiet ones. Along the way, we'll pass the Oyster Bay Planting Fields and lots of beautiful homes and estates. The high point of our day (in more ways than one!) will be a stop at Sagamore Hill, the historic home of Theodore Roosevelt. This is an advanced ride and NOT recommended for those who are new to cycling, not used to hills, or are slow to recover after a challenging incline. Fear not! There are some stretches of flat roads to offset those hills and give your legs a rest. Before we start, there is a restroom located behind the train tracks at Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park. The other restroom is at Sagamore Hill. Total mileage is approximately 20 miles. Pack plenty of energy food and water. There is a picnic area with vending machines at Sagamore Hill. Feel free to pack a lunch to enjoy once we arrive there. Ensure you bike is in good working order (all gears working) and tires are properly inflated and brakes! Helmets are mandatory! Arrive no later than 9:00am, kickstands up at 9:30! Please visit the restroom PRIOR to 9:30! RAIN CANCELS.
