MPBC presents the second annual North Fork Classic, a season-closing club mini-event that visits the farms, vineyards, inlets and beaches of the northern branch of Long Island’s East End. This year’s edition features a metric (62 mi.) and a century (103 mi.) route, both starting from Mattituck Plaza on Main Road in Mattituck.

The planned date is Saturday October 14th. The ride is open to club members only, but prospects have the option of joining the ride upon registering for a membership.

This year MPBC offers a discounted ride registration if paired with a new or renewal MPBC club membership. Club memberships completed as part of NFC registration will run through April of 2025.

All registrants will also receive a 20% discount coupon for the soon-to-be-released new MPBC Club Kit.
