* Trial Tour Twelve
This pleasant flat route meanders through Greenlawn, East Northport and Elwood for 12.9 miles (We dare not say 13!). A ride leader will be available to guide those who are ready to start at 9:00 am. Novice cyclists will learn the rules of the road for group riding and the use of cue sheets and road markings to follow a tour route.
* Harbors and Hills (25 miles)
The best part of a hill is the view you get from the top! Enjoy magnificent views of Huntington and Cold Spring Harbors as you ride along the coast and through beautiful residential communities.
* Vintage Villages (55 miles)
You will also enjoy the harbors and hills. Then you peddle though a string of charming and historic villages - Laurel Hallow, Oyster Bay, Locust Valley, Roslyn, Old Westbury, Brookville and others.
* Grand Tour (70 miles)
Harbors, hills, vintage villages, views of Oyster Bay Harbor & Mill Neck Bay & the affluent communities along the way, show you why Long Island's north shore is called the "Gold Coast".
* Century Challenge (100 miles)
Even experienced century riders find this one a challenge. Your tour includes all the beautiful sights of the other tours plus 35 more hilly miles!
