Bike, Boat, Wine & Dine Weekend Trip
Reviving an old favorite! - Bike, Boat, Wine and Dine
Long Island North Fork and Shelter Island
After too many years away from the vineyards, our classic early June weekend to Long Island’s serenely beautiful North Fork returns. Our trip features mostly flat biking, lush vineyards, scenic coastlines, a lighthouse or two, and a visit to Shelter Island. On one day, we'll meander along the back roads to and from Greenport, where we'll take the short ferry ride across the harbor to Shelter Island for a quick tour. On the other day, we’ll tour and sample the vintages of a few of the excellent wineries dotting the area. Lodging is at our old friends at the Mattituck Motel, a short walk from town. Price includes 2 nights lodging (double occupancy), two breakfasts and two dinners (one a pizza nite?) and car-pooling expenses.
Note: transportation arranged by train, self, or car pooling. We ask that when you register, contact us if you have a car & rack and can take passengers. If you don’t have a car, please contact us if you need transportation. If you prefer to ride to the start, please let us know ahead of time so we know to look for you.
Flat to rolling terrain 50-80 (in two days) miles / Start Location TBD - will work with the volunteers who offer to drive carpool - Gas reimbursed!
