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 could be short sections on dirt roads where larger tires might be better.  Highlights include North Lighthouse, Southeast Lighthouse, Vail Beach and Mohegan Bluffs.  Make a weekend out of it and book local accommodation for the nights of Friday 24 and Saturday 25 September (and Sunday night 26 September, as well, if you want to join us for a nice long weekend).  Sunday I'll lead a walk on trails at Clay Head for those who stay the weekend and might be interested in a bike/hike event.   Assuming everyone's vaccinated by the Labor Day, we expect this event to proceed without any restrictions within the group.  As of this writing, Block Island is open, subject to CDC guidelines.  We'll be checking back with the manager at the Island Manor Resort after Labor Day for any updates/changes to the situation there. 

Directions To Trailhead Parking Lot

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 - and any COVID updates).  Once you've disembarked, please make your way to 215 Chapel Street (Island Manor Resort) and Unit #19/20.  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 the apartment, we'll head out on our adventure.  Morning ride out to the North Lighthouse and back; afternoon ride looping around the southern part of the island.  Afternoon ride followed by Happy Hour at my timeshare unit.  Dinner @ 7PM for those on-island and the 7PM ferry for those heading back to the mainland.  As of this writing, Block Island is open, subject to CDC guidelines.  I'll be checking back with the manager at the Island Manor Resort after Labor Day for any updates/changes to the situation there.
