Itinerary

Day 1 :

This tour starts in the historic and quaint Stony Brook Village.
Upon arrival there will be welcome refreshments, introductions, orientation and bike fittings. You will relax, refresh and take in and explore the historic Stony Brook village by foot or bike. Possibly tour the Reboli Gallery or the Stony Brook Grist Mill, which is in the backyard of the Inn. Dinner is on your own nightly in the village.

Day 2

Revolutionary Road. (15-90 miles, with options to end at the Inn every 15 miles)
Enjoy cycling on secluded shaded roads while you pass by the houses and taverns that housed the Washington spy network of the American Revolution. Each loop takes you to a beach, a harbor, horse farms, historic sites and fashionable places to eat. The roads are hilly, but the hills are short and most climbs are rewarded by spectacular views. Loops vary from 15-30 miles leaving from the Inn and we will route you on as many as you are up for. When you finish, there is a winery a half a mile from the Inn and several taverns within walking distance from the Inn. Or you are welcome to just lounge and enjoy to views of the Inn and drink a beer with your hosts. Guided historical tours are also available.

Day 3

The South Fork and the famous villages of The Hamptons. (30, 50, 75 mile options – can be customized)
An early morning shuttle to the village Riverhead takes you to the gateway of Long Island’s Legendary South Fork. Peddle past the Big Duck and then over to the Shinnecock canal to the Historic town of Southampton. Head out to Sagaponack Beach (rated as one of the top 10 beaches in the US), and since you are on a bike, you don't have to worry about paying for Parking!! Then our route takes you across the fork on roller coaster hilled secluded roads and to the historic whaling town of Sag Harbor, with a stop in Bridgehampton if you like, on the way. After lunch, head back on the north side of the fork past the world famous Shinnecock golf course and then back to Riverhead where pubs and dining spots abound. If you are up for a few additional miles we can route you into the town of East Hampton where you can try to spot celebs. If you have a century in you, we can send you all the way out to Montauk.

Day 4

The North Fork, Long Island’s wine country (30, 50, 75 mile options – can be customized)
Shuttle to head out of Riverhead and ride along the scenic Peconic bay. Then the ride steers you to the North Fork wine trail. Enjoy one of the US's premier wine producing districts. Stop for lunch along the water and then head back along Sound road where you will find beaches, farms and more wineries. This ride can be done as a beautiful scenic ride, a physical challenge or a wine tasters delight. We will pick you up at the beach in Wading River.

Day 5

The Big Apple on two wheels (30 – 75 miles)
Tour NYC by bike. Hop the LIRR into Brooklyn (the Inn provides the transfer to and from the train) and take a tour of the Brooklyn revival. We will put you on a tour of Williamsburg, Park Slope, Prospect Park and the waterfront. Then it is over the legendary Brooklyn Bridge for a ride into Manhattan. Stop at the apex of the Bridge and with the canyons of Wall Street and the South Street seaport as your backdrop; enjoy a selfie that will become your new profile picture. Stop for lunch at the Seaport and then head up the East river bike path to 59th street. Head cross-town, passing the renowned hotels and into Central Park. Take the loop around the park, but be careful to observe all traffic signs. (We wouldn’t want you to receive a traffic violation), then continue to explore the park, perhaps America’s best people watching locale. Head cross-town and up the Hudson River bike path. With The George Washington Bridge and the Jersey Palisades in sight, take as long as you want. Return to midtown and you can make your way back to Penn Station. Come back as late as you want.
