I know, I am a little late getting started this year. Last Sunday was my first ride of the season, 28 miles to Teddy Roosevelt park in Oyster Bay via Ridge Rd. I was surprised that I was actually able to make it up the short, steep hill on Moores Hill Rd.
On the ride a rider who was new to the club asked me if I had a cue sheet. I said I did not but told him where to find some. I know many of the people who ride with the club have no idea how to even get to the service road. It’s hard for me to understand that but I guess I am blessed with a good sense of direction. I can’t help but think though, if people would take the initiative to get out with only one or two others and learn how to navigate the area they too could learn the rides. Maybe, because I do have that ability I am wrong in thinking everyone could learn.
At the very least, try it. I have routes posted on Mapmyride.com as do many others. I have put BK’s in front of my rides. If you do a search for Bethpage, NY you will see many rides leaving from the parking lot. I can’t vouch for the others but mine as I said are prefaced with a BK’s. You can print them out and go for it!
I noticed that there are new bike lanes painted at the lights on South Woods Rd!! Thanks to TOB or whomever was responsible for that.
Have a safe season everyone.
