Were you and your wife riding a green tandem on Pulaski Road last night about 6:15?

Man, so tandems must be getting very popular on Long Island. That's the second time in recent months I've seen a couple on a tandem and it wasn't you guys.

Did a "Park and Ride" commute today. Not too early, pretty humid at 84%. No winds though.

NYC schools started today so it was a fluster cuck out there. Busy everywhere and everybody's back from vacation. Cars everywhere.

As well, NYC has closed the Rockaway Boardwalk for 22 blocks (Beach 40 to Beach 18), I assume so the contractors can start ripping out the existing wood to install new concrete, scheduled to open next spring. Thus I'm back on Edgemere Blvd. for a bit and it sucked. I've been spoiled riding off the roads all year.

All in all and since it was the first day of school in NY, driving would have just sucked and cycling never does.

Indeed it was, headed home from my wife's office. I apologize, for subjecting you to the mortifying sight of my sweaty countenance. Mirror is on eyeglass earpiece though, I'm much too cool for a helmet mirror.

Were you on 2 wheels or 4?

You got grey, yuk, yuk....

I was driving from Costco and headed to the Goodwill pool for a swim, stopped just inside thinking you were headed down that stupid path, I was going to intercept but you headed into EP somewhere instead.

Why were you out at 2 ?, it was hot.

1.4 million people living in Nassau and you see somebody on a bike you know. Strange odds.

I do keep a lookout for oldnslow as well, he rides much the same routes I do, no sighting yet.

Ha, you should see when I return from a backpacking trip and have not shaved for a week+, my beard comes in very white. Not much gray up on top. My wife feels that the relative amounts of aggravation we give each other is reflected in our gray hair ratio; I have less in spite of being 5 years older.

I cut across EP at Park Blvd and through the parking lots/cycle paths/park roads, and emerge onto Salisbury Park Dr. right by the dog run.

Work-related sleep deprivation caught up with me this morning and I got up really late, and then the dog gave me the
"can we go out" look against which I am powerless. And then I got on the bike.

I think OldnSlow rides mostly in eastern Nassau & into Suffolk, I've met him a number of times.

I'm in Massapequa so I will ride to Tobay or head north either east or west of Bethpage and then head to the north shore. Usually between Glen Cove and Kings Park.

I must be getting old....

Planned on riding with MBC to Sea Cliff this morning. I put my helmet, shoes and gloves on my garage workbench, put air in the tires and put the bike in the car. There was no traffic and only took 15 minutes to get to Mineola. I reached down to pull the trunk release cable and as I got out of the car, I realized that I never put the helmet, shoes and gloves in the car.

D'oh

So I drove home and wend to Plan B... ride to Tobay.

29 miles @ 15.7mph and 1000c

It was really windy heading east from the pencil to Tobay. My heart rate, which is normally around 132 on the flats, averaged 145 into the wind and my speed was 13.6mph average. On the way back my average speed was 22mph.

Anyway... it was a workout.

Don't let that worry you....at least you didn't forget to put your front wheel in the car, and then proceed to run it over as you backed out of the driveway.

Did that once about 25 years ago.

Today was a sweat-fest of 42 miles to Centre island/Bayville. I was paranoid about cramping up, as I was very conscious of the vast amounts of fluid I was losing, but the Mrs. was a powerhouse and got us home. Narrowly averted disaster when some object got kicked up and derailed our timing chain, but no harm done.

The "pencil" is the big water tower at Jones Beach.

Today, after learning that the Kissena Corridor would be packed with cyclists doing the NYC Century, I made a last-minute decision to head out to Greenport to ride across the forks to Sag Harbor. I've done this ride many, many times, but it's always a pleasant reminder of how lucky we are to live on an island.

The short ferry hops from Greenport to Shelter Island and Shelter Island to North Haven were typically exhilarating, with a refreshing September breeze drying the sweat from my neck and forehead just when I needed it. The very pretty girl on the North Ferry was either in a charitable mood or she thought I looked like a laborer, because she only charged me a $3 "worker" round trip fee, instead of the usual $5. I explained that I wasn't working, but she insisted I accept her offer.

Shelter Island was bustling with tourists and weekend renters, but drivers are mostly tolerant of, or even courteous to, cyclists on Rt. 114. I still can't find a Shelter Island decal small enough for my bike frame, though, and it's getting kind of frustrating after all these years of riding there.

I didn't see any deer today, but there were quite a few dead birds on the road, leading me to wonder if that bird flu might be coming back. Lots of amateur cyclists were out, plodding up and down Shelter Island's rolling hills atop poorly fitted Walmart bikes and struggling to keep their lopsided backpacks from flopping to one side or the other. The country music coming out of my little speaker was very popular with the folks I passed or rode alongside, and it really set a cool tone that will definitely be part of the memory I will have of these rides someday.

Anyway, the wide bike lane on North Haven is always a welcomed upgrade from the skinny little stripe on the side of Rt. 114 on Shelter Island. Still, I always jump onto a side road called Sunset Beach Road along the way, where I turn off my music and just enjoy the car-free quiet for about a mile or so. Today, the distinct sounds of autumn were ringing out from everywhere along that road.

After Sunset Beach Road, I took another side trip to the beach at Noyac, which I recommend as a part of any trip across the forks. Although it's not a spectacular beach, it's a great reminder that you've been riding within a stone's throw of the water all along. Plus, it's not too far off the route to Sag Harbor.

Back on track, as I crossed the awesomely scenic bridge into Sag Harbor, I noticed that there was a festival taking place on the docks. Traffic was heavy and lots of golden-tanned, puffy-lipped Hamptonites seemed quite envious of me as I zipped by them on my jalopy of a bicycle. I walked around the festival for a little while, my sweaty stench tangoing in the muggy air with the aroma of overpriced Hampton-style junk food. I didn't quite feel welcomed there, and that made me realize I wouldn't be so welcomed in East Hampton (where I was headed) either. So I decided to abort and turn back for Greenport, where middle aged men riding 1990's vintage mountain bikes in t-shirts and cacky shorts are considered human.

After an $11 slice of pizza at probably the sleeziest pizza joint I've ever seen, I ultimately arrived back in Greenport, where my car was waiting at the free public parking lot.

As far as I'm concerned, just about any ride is better than no ride at all. I'm glad I pushed myself to get on the saddle today, but this particular ride is one that's much more enjoyable when my wife comes along with me. Still, if you've never done it, I'd make it a part of your fall ride schedule.

Oh, OK, Old said the pencil to Tobay, I was thinking the actual village. Silly me.

Nice report Tom, but $11 for a slice ?, is that a typo ?

And glad the weather was nice out east, as Joe said, it was hot and humid, again, here in Nassau. I'm really, really looking forward to some nice cool fall riding days, and I like summer !

A change of pace today. In honor of today's Gran Fondo, we slept late and did a Gran Fondon't (stole that from BikeSnobNYC) as in, don't sweat too much. Up to Cold Spring Harbor at a relaxed pace for another nice outdoor lunch at the Whaler, and then home. Yesterday we did the whole AA ride turning over that 54t ring; today stayed off it (mostly). 34.5 miles but then the stoker wanted to pootle around the neighborhood because, you know, 35 is so much betterer.

Ahhh, autumn is here.

At least it was at 8am when I headed out. After sitting out Monday (took the dog fishing. We caught 2 stripers) and Tues. and Wed. (squeezed entire workweek into 2 days), it was time. So, headed out to Stony Brook. Headwind going, tailwind on return. A wonderful ride, only 74 miles instead of usual 80 'cause I took a few shortcuts coming home. Showered, lunch, mowed grass, and now taking the old boy out again.

Can anybody fill me in on where the continuous path begins and ends at the Kissena Corridor Park?

I'm looking for an easy ride for my wife this weekend, and this looks like an option. I was going to preview it by myself last weekend, but I found out the NYC Century was going through there the same morning I planned to ride it.

I'd want to start east of Flushing Meadow Park and end at the park itself. I prefer not to drag her into traffic, so I'd prefer a section of the Corridor that's all off-road, if that even exists.

A Good Ride

Sometimes the best rides are the ones you "sneak in" unexpectedly. I had some A.M.appointments today & took the day off. I woke up earlier then expected & had a little less than 2 hours to kill. It was such a beautiful morning I jumped on the bike & rode around Lynbrook Hewlett Harbor & Woodmere. The fall like beauty of the morning was only enchanced by observing everyone else going to work.

AA ride of 41 miles to Locust Valley. I think all my bikes could make that ride without my input, like a trained horse.

Friendly reminder, tomorrow is 25th annual Tour of the Hamptons, start is at Southampton HS. We have never had a rain out; fingers are crossed. We will be busy with the slingin' of peanut butter and slicing' of oranges and mixin' of Gatorade (my specialty) at the first stop in Bridgehampton for the morning shift, and then doing an abbreviated ride, usually around 40-ish out to the other stop at Fresh Pond. It's a good ride.

Decided to wait till 8:00am for the weather to warm up.

Headed north and wound up taking Sweet Hollow to Stillwell. By the end of the ride it was 54 miles @ 15mph, 2000' and 2000c.

Kaos:

I used to be the sports drink mixer for the NYC Century at the Astoria Park rest stop. What a mess at the end of the shift, eh? That stuff used to be embedded in my arm hair and all over my sneakers. Yuck!

Note: If anybody is interested, I have moved my discussion of the Kissena/Cunningham Corridor to a thread called "Seriously...Kissena/Cunnigham Corridor." There, I laid out the cue sheet I used on my recent ride and would really like some input from anyone who has ridden the corridor.

Thanks!

Nice turnout at the 25th T.O.H., and another year with the rain clouds dodged. It might as well have rained, it was wicked humid. The riders seemed pleased, we heard zero complaints and many compliments. Hope some of you made it out there.

After the after afternoon volunteers relieved us, 5 of us saddled up and meandered north to Sag Harbor, then down to East Hampton, back to Bridgehampton, out east again to Wainscott, and back to Bridge. A short ride but a good one.

A good day.

Wonderful commutes home yesterday and back to work today. Bit warm in the city at the start Wed. but then nice along the beach. North wind made for a quick ride. Almost nailed by a women pulling out of a Dairy Barn in Oceanside, I need a front light that has better side-side visibility, I think my current (old) light has too narrow a beam. Big sale at Brands coming up !.

Then back in today, 65 degrees, NE wind at 3. Streets were busy with car commuters, but nobody on the boardwalk.

56 miles total, a bit over 4 hours of nice riding. My 2 car commutes this week have taken 2:45 each day.

That sounds like a great commute! Good for you. I can't imagine the non boardwalk segments being all that pleasant, but I'm not familiar with the area and have never ridden or even been there.

Perfect late summer day today although sleep deprivation caught up with me and I didn't get out until after 12. I went up to Crab Meadow beach from home and then explored a bit in the Northport area, 53 miles.
