The days, and the rides are finally getting longer. After last weeks 42 mile ride, we tacked on additional few and made this one a solid 58 miles (93 km) long. We met at the department at 6:15AM but postponed the departure because it was still dark, we postponed the departure until about 7AM. Oh, and it was also solid 30 degrees F outside, which to the rest of the World translates to just about -1 degrees C. Regardless of the temperature it was supposed to be a very sunny day with no clouds and abundant blue sky.

Long and Short beach are located in the town of Nissequogue on the North Shore of Long Island. Both beaches seemed to be accessible by ~20-25 mile bicycle ride to the west from our homebase in Stony Brook. The weather forecast for the weekend was sunny and hot (too hot) so we decided to leave around 8 am from campus. After some minor repairs and bike maintenance we left around 8:30. The basic plan was to follow 25A to St. James and then Moriches road north to the beaches and then on the way back, to avoid busy 25A we planned to follow the coast on Harbor Road back to Stony Brook village and to campus.
