Foothills of the beautiful Adirondack Mountains, NY
If you don't connect with anyone, try the Suffolk Bike Riders Association. They were the big club when I was down there. I just checked and they are still around. If you are in Nassau, there is a club in Massapequa Park. I know they are still around too, because they come to my area and ride with one of our local clubs.
Just watch out for the drivers......I think they are worse than NJ drivers
