Registration is required for this activity.

Overview

This is it! After several years of construction, the entire length of the Ocean Parkway Coastal Greenway is finally complete and open to the public. We'll meet in Wantagh and ride South through Cedar Creek Park and along the Wantagh Parkway Bike Path to Jones Beach State Park. From Jones Beach we will ride to Captree State Park to see the fishing fleet docked there and ride back again along pristine seashore with views of the ocean and Great South Bay. The entire ride will be about 40 miles and our moving pace will be approximately 10-12 mph. So please make sure you are comfortable with the distance and pace and that your bike is in good, working condition. Also, please be sure to bring a helmet, equipment to repair a flat tire (or be prepared to contact a taxi or ride), plenty of water, and lunch/snacks. Face masks and hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol are required as per AMC COVID-19 rules. Once you are registered, wait for an email from the trip leader (Andrew Ricci, andrew.ricci@gmail.com) on the day before the ride providing instructions about where and when to meet. Taking public transportation is an option, and details will be included in Andrew's email. Due to pandemic restrictions, total group size is limited to 10 participants. So please be sure to register as soon as registration opens on May 7th. Email the trip leader, Andrew Ricci, with any questions at andrew.ricci@gmail.com.
