Disclaimer: The club and its members take no responsibility and will not be held responsible for any injuries or accidents that may occur during club events. Outdoor sports are inherently dangerous and accidents will happen. By joining the club or participating in any events posted on the GayOutdoors web page you are taking responsibility for your own safety and well-being. Anyone with an internet connection can post a trip on the GayOutdoors web site. It is your responsibility to determine if this person has the experience and competence to lead the trip. GayOutdoors does not certify or confirm the qualifications of any of its members to lead or participate in trips.
Be Prepared: Please be prepared to be self-sufficient. Have your own provisions such as first aid kit, food, water, extra clothing for unplanned weather, etc. Have your EMERGENCY CONTACT SHEET completed and in your backpack; it may save your life, and help reach someone who greatly cares!
Pace: There may be activities when the group is either slower or faster than your current ability. Please know that because this is a group activity, it's hard to accommodate everyone's pace perfectly. Our desire is not to leave anyone, however there have been times when it is in the best interest of all to split up. Please do your part by knowing your own abilities, communicating with the organizer head of time if you would like to start early and have us catch up or fine with finishing on your own.
Summary

Please join us for a day of cycling 15 miles around the beautiful rolling countryside of Block Island.  Most riding will be on paved roads but there are a couple of miles on dirt where larger tires might be better.  Highlights include North Lighthouse, Southeast Lighthouse, Black Rock Beach and Mohegan Bluffs.  Make a weekend out of it and book local accommodation for the nights of Friday 29 and Saturday 30 September (and Sunday night 1 October, as well, if you want to join Gary and me for a nice long weekend).  Sunday I'll lead a walk on trails of Nature Conservancy property for those who might be interested.  This trip will be co-listed with Chiltern and Sundance Outdoor Adventure Society of New York City.

Driving directions to the location and spot to meet at:

For daytrippers, please pack your lunch and get yourselves to Point Judith/Galilee RI by 8:30AM in time to park your car and get tix for the 9AM departure ferry to Block Island (http://www.blockislandferry.com for complete directions on how to get to the ferry).  We'll meet in a small park to the right above the Old Harbor loading area after the boat docks.  For those weekenders already on the island, please get your lunch at the Island Grocery (or elsewhere) and meet us at Island Manor Resort on Chapel Street by 10:30AM.  After meeting up with the daytrippers and getting lunches stashed in our apartment, we'll head out on our adventure.
