I have never done this ride but it sounds epic so I figured why not? The plan? Meet at 0700 in Queensboro Plaza and ride east all day until we reach the Montauk Lighthouse. This would be a 135 mile ride. We would do two group or three groups. One fast, one medium paced and one slow group. I will lead the medium paced group. I would need volunteers for the fast paced group and the slow paced group. The medium pace group would be going at an average of 18mph. Fast group would be doing 24mph and slow group would be the decided by the leader. Requirements: For the fast and medium paced group only road bikes. No hybrids or commuters or anything that can't go at least 18mph on the flat roads. For the slow group I would talk to the leader once we have one for that what his requirements are. Bike lights Two tubes Rain jacket This is a self-supported ride. If you can't keep pace with the groups and end up getting lost you will need to figure out how to get out and back home on your own. We will be riding mostly roads so you must be comfortable with that. For the medium pace group I expect arrival at the Montauk light house around 6pm with stops for breakfast and lunch on the way and breaks to refill water bottles and eat a snack. If you don't own a road bike but want to come then Ride Brooklyn and Unlimited Biking rent road bikes in the city. I can post their info or you can google them up. We will stay overnight in Montauk at hotel once I have determined the number of people we have. I estimated the hotel for one night would be about $90 for the night. I am going to ask for payments for the hotel about a month before around the beginning of August. We will have to share beds. If you want your own bed then it would be $180 for the night. The Hamptons are pretty expensive. You are welcome to book your own hotel room also. We will get dinner in the Hamptons once we have taken a shower and changed on Saturday night. Sunday we will wake up late and chill out in the Hamptons. In the evening we will take the train back to the city.
