I haven’t touched my bike IN FIVE DAYS!!!
This is not by choice — it’s the result of some work deadlines coming due and my being out of town over the weekend. Regardless, it is unacceptable! I’ll be punishing myself on the trainer for a few hours of atonement.
Saturday I have a self-supported century lined up. My plan is to take the Bridgeport-Port Jefferson ferry over to Long Island with my bike. From Port Jefferson I will ride across the North Fork to Orient Point, a little over 50 miles. After reaching the northern terminus of Long Island, I will turn around and head to Greenport, where I will grab some lunch and swing by the Greenport Harbor Brewing Company for a beer sampler.
Finally, I’ll ride back to Port Jefferson where I’ll meet up with The Wife™ for some dinner and some more beer tasting at the Port Jefferson Brewing Company. See the theme here?
Finally, we shall traverse the great Long Island Sound by ferry and return to the jewel-encrusted shores of Connecticut.
The entire route is about 105 miles long and is relatively flat. I’m hoping this ride will keep me in shape for the Bethpage 300k brevet coming up later in June.
