Introductions - New from LI
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Hi...to celebrate our 50th birthdays, some friends and I are going to do some sprint (short) triathlons this summer; back in the new bike market and a nice weekly long ride after a number of years focused on indoor workouts.

Hello BWally, I've got a friend who lives in Levittown, and when I've gone to visit her LI looks like a great place to do some riding, especially out to the beaches.
Welcome to BF!

Hello and welcome, BWally,
I live on Long Island too.
I just joined the Long Island Bicycle Club.
Dues are twenty dollars a year.
I don't know if I'm ready for the longer rides. Longest ride I've done lately is about twelve miles.
I don't even own a road bike.
I have a recumbent, two electric bikes, a mountain bike with street tires, and a lowrider (BMX disguised to look like a 1982 Suzuki GS).
I carry a little whisk broom when I ride, and I sweep the broken glass up if I come across it (Heineken, snapple, corona) bottles get tossed out of moving cars. I will concentrate on the route published in the LIBC website.
It looks like Piping Rock Road is being prepared for a repaving between Locust Valley and Old Brookville.
It might be time for me to get a road bike, although I like my faired recumbent.
I suggest that you should join the LIBC, while I work behind the scenes.
