>>>>You could also take public transit to Port Jefferson (via LIRR) and then take the ferry to Bridgeport, CT...has anyone ridden this?<<<<<<
Yes. I rode from Bridgeport to Darien, CT, which is a little further west than Norwalk. There are some very nice parts to this ride once you're out of Bridgeport. Here's my cue sheet. Mind you, however, that there was at least one spot where I had to ask for directions. Bridgeport to Darien (21 miles)
Ferry Access Road south, becomes RR Avenue. Follow RR Avenue east 1.5 miles
Turn left on Fairfield Avenue and go 4.5 miles to Pequot
Turn left on Pequot and go 1.5 miles to fork. Bear left onto Beachside Avenue
1.2 miles and turn right onto New Creek
Quick left onto Greens Farms Road
2.5 miles and bear right/straight onto Bridge Street
½ mile, cross water and turn left on Riverside Ave
Go under 95 and make right onto Charles St/Park St (Rt.136)
At fork, go left on Park.
Bear left onto Sagatauk Ave (becomes Winfield St)
2.25 miles to East Ave (E. Norwalk train station)
From here, you'll have to customize the rest of your trip!
