Last Saturday’s Ride + New Ride

Yesterday, we went for a group ride. The weather was nice, a little cool, a little windy, but overall good. Three of us (J.Matt, Noto, and Adam) rode from campus through Stony Brook, Setauket, Poquott, and Port Jefferson. Highlights included stops at several yard sales, seeing swan and osprey at the Poquott harbor, and seeing the signs of spring in the new vegetation and flowers. Our route was a tidy 11 miles.

I’d like to get more people out on the rides with us, so I’m looking for other people to suggest times and destinations for group rides. Otherwise, I will continue to be out at the fountain on the academic mall at 10am on Saturday mornings and ready to ride with anyone that shows up.


Ride this week!

Its getting close to the end of the semester and the pressure of finals, grading, etc. is bearing down upon us.  What better way to relieve some of that stress than to take a relaxing bike ride around the area?  Post comments here to suggest a ride this week.

I’ll start: Stony Brook Campus to Port Jefferson Village, Saturday April 26, 10 am meet at the fountain in the center of campus (up by admin and the humanities bldgs).  Post a comment that you would like to join this ride or suggest another.
