Old Field Lighthouse Plus
This is a new ride and a ride not to be missed. We meet in the large main parking lot at the Ronkonkoma LIRR at 10:30. There is a LIRR train scheduled to arrive at Ronkonkoma station at 10:25, which leaves from Penn Station at just after 9:00 AM. You can also leave from Atlantic Terminal at 8:45 and transfer to the Ronkonkoma train at Jamaica. Finally, you can catch the train at Jamaica
The ride makes its way from Ronkonkoma north by Stony Brook, to the historic Setaukic area and up around scenic Strong’s Neck. From there we head over and then up to Old Field Lighthouse and then down to some hills by Head of the Harbor and then south with a stop by Lake Ronkonkoma before making our way back to the start.
Note that we will be stopping by a bagel place near Stony Brook where you will have an option to get a sandwich to go and take to the Lighthouse, where we will have a short stop. Late in the ride we will also stop by a pizza/deli place where you can grab a slice as we make a rest room stop.
Please bring plenty of hydration, lunch or money for lunch, the usual Bike stuff and an upbeat inquisitive attitude. Also, please register for the ride or contact me that you will be attending.
