NYC folks, there is a train leaving from grand central station at 9:07am that gets in to bridgeport at 10:27am - I think you need a bike permit to take your ride on the train. The fare is $22-$29 r/t depending on whether or not it is peak hours.Originally Posted by EnLaCalle

NYC ride Sunday August 20th
Staten Island, but meet at Staten Island Ferry terminal in Manhattan
(1 Whitehall Street at South Street in Lower Manhattan)
Meet time: 10:45am’ish
Ride/ferry leaves on time @11:00am
In addition to info posted on the times-up site, I’ll add this (as the person leading the ride):
From the ferry to the beach is about ~15 miles through mostly bike friendly roads, most of it is flat,
however there are some unavoidable hills thrown in the mix, but you guys are healthy...I think, nothing
too crazy! The return trip back to the ferry is about 5 miles (less scenic route)
Unless you’re a macho guy, I suggest you have at least one bottle of water with you, there are a few
stores along the way, so we’ll make stops if need be, but a man prepared, is a man less dead...I don’t
know what that means exactly, but I like the sound of it
It’s also probably best to bring your own lunch to be enjoyed at the beach, but if you travel lite there’s
a pizza shop and a deli or two a few blocks away from the beach site.
The time scheduled for this ride says 11:00, but I suggest you aim to get to the Staten Island Ferry
station at 10:45 since the ferry we’re catching leaves at exactly 11:00am.
