Recommendations for Bike Routes on Eastern Long Island

We have a small group of CT road cyclists that have never ridden on Long Island but would like to tour some of the highlights. We are thinking of making a day of it by taking our bikes onto the ferry at New London CT and traveling to Orient point. We would like to put a scenic loop together and possibly include Montauk Point, the Hamptons, beaches, etc. Is there some sort of a 'standard' loop by any of the bike clubs that takes in these destinations? A ride of 60 to 90 miles would be fine. I have not had much success finding maps and/or cue sheets on the net for such a loop. Perhaps some of the locals can suggest something. Thanks!

when do you plan on going?

Only one day or multiday?

A round trip from orient to Montauk and back would be a long day even cutting it off in Sag Harbor and taking the Shelter Island Ferry

If I only had one day I would stick to the north fork or maybe Shelter Island. There is plenty of scenery up there for one day.

If multiday let me know and I could suggest a few routes for the South Fork
