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 - 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.
