Let's try to get the first meetup of the season under our belt. We'll keep it simple and stick to the bikeway starting from Old Country Road and going south to Sunrise Highway for a ride of about 20 miles round trip. The ride will end at Brady Park, Sunrise Hwy, which has benches and restrooms, and then we will return to our starting point.
For those not up to 20 miles, Linden Street is a good turnaround point for a 14 mile roundtrip. The ride is a little hilly in the first portion of the ride, but is totally flat after Linden St, as we ride through scenic Massapequa Preserve, and stop at Brady Park.
The bikeway is clearly marked, so there is no way to get lost. It can be crowded with walkers, joggers, and fellow bikers on nice spring days, so please be respectful and yield those we share the path with.
Please bring water and snacks, have your bike ride ready (see the pre ride checklist post in discussions), and arrive 15 minutes prior to the ride, so we can get assembled and we can brief the group and take attendance. If you are not going to attend please change your attendance status, there will be plenty opportunities to ride this season.

Our fingers are crossed for good weather next weekend! - Bridget & Drew
