Bathe in Bayville
Follow the 5BBC on its annual ride to the Beach in Bayville. Bring/wear your bathing suit because we will swim and splash in the water at Centre Island Beach. We will see beautiful Centre Island before or after lunch.
We are meeting inside Penn Station, downstairs at LIRR, near the ticket machines/track display at 9am and leaving on the 9:18am train to Port Washington. We will get off the train at Little Neck Station at 9:52AM.
If you would like to save $ and time, buy a CityPass LIRR (off-peak) ticket, round-trip for $8.50. If you buy the e-ticket, activate your departure before you enter the train.
Live in Queens or Long Island? if you prefer to meet us at Little Neck Station, please register online and email me beforehand.
All cyclists must carry a MTA bike permit on them to use LIRR/MNR. You can purchase it for $5 at Grand Central Station.
You MUST wear a helmet on all 5BBC rides. I also strongly encourage all riders to wear gloves, sunglasses, insect repellant & sunblock. Please bring plenty of fluids.. We will eat at the beach. Travel lightly; leave your Kryptonite lock at home.
This is a ride with some hills and beautiful scenery. Please join us! There will be opportunities to take pictures at the Beach and Centre Island. We plan to ride at 12-16mph, but will adjust for weather or needs of the group. We also may add a scenic stop to the Maritime College and may even change our beach to a nearby one.
