I had a feeling you were getting at something like this. lol As opposed to the 110+ miles it would be if I rode to and from Brooklyn to the course you suggested. I really have to dissect this info and create a course for my Garmin based on this, as it looks like the 45 mile ride you are recommending is really nice. Also, I have a bike rack that comes on and off my car, s if I went that route, I would likely just drive out there. LIRR is a pain in the ass to get to and from as I live in South Brooklyn. Its doable, of course, but driving would likely be easier. Also I have friends in Long Island who would gladly let me crash. So I could also ride out there, one way to Wantagh, the 33 miles you recommended, do the 45 mile course, and then just stay on the Island, with a much more manageable 78+ mile ride. Either way, I will definitely check out the course you are suggesting. Thanks!

Northport Harbor/Asharoken


What. A. Day.

Even Long Island can sometimes almost rate a "10".
