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 28 and Saturday 29 September (and Sunday night 30 September, as well, if you want to join Gary and me for a nice long weekend). Sunday I'll lead a walk on trails at Clay Head for those who might be interested. This trip will be co-listed with Chiltern and Sundance Outdoor Adventure Society of New York City.
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 (Unit #19/20) 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. Afternoon ride followd by Happy Hour at our unit. Dinner @ 7PM for those on-island and the 7PM ferry for those heading back to the mainland.
