Your Ride-Day Info
EVERYBODY who does the 50-mile route begins pedaling from the same place:
Local Bike Shop (yes, that's the name of the place!)
39 Montauk Highway
Hampton Bays, NY
The store is located in the back of the shopping center.
There are several ways to get there:
If you live close by you can pedal there.
You can drive your car there with your bike. Plenty of free parking at the Hampton Bays train station across the street. Driving directions here.
If you choose to drive yourself there you should show up at 9:30 a.m.
You can check in at our Manhattan, Babylon, Brooklyn, or Mastic-Sirley start lines and we will transport your bike and you for free to Hampton Bays. Will you be traveling by bus? Train? What do you care! Just show up, stand still, smile, and let us take extra-good care of you.
IF you want to check in at one of those places and be transported to Hampton Bays here are the times you should show up:
W.31st Street and 8th Avenue
Babylon LIRR train station
Atlantic Avenue & Flatbush Avenue
Mastic-Shirley LIRR station
Northern Blvd & Surrey Cir, Shirley, NY
IF it fits your schedule we recommend that you check-in the day before. If it doesn’t fit your schedule, DON’T worry!
ALL cyclists end at the same place in Montauk for the finish line, no matter which distance you pick.
