I've done the 62 mile route the last two years. It's northern Long Island, so it is hilly. I'm pretty sure the 25 mile route is relatively flat, though

Thanks much ~ JoAnn

I think it is already marked on the roads with a M. I seem to remember seeing them coming down Muttontown road. Might be worth checking out.

As it is the North shore you are going to have hills, but nothing you couldn't handle if you did a metric century. IMHO.
