Early Birds North - again - and some extra miles mission

Sunday -- the Early Birds day on the East End of LI. 6:39am ride to the start at good TT like pace. At the parking lot in Manorville a quite reasonable sized group gathered for the ride.


Due to Earl Dune Rd seamed to be flooded and they had to go North again. Rolling out...


Moving East taking advantage of some tail wind a good fast pace developed quickly, only the few section heading North needed little extra efforts but no big deal in the big field. A pretty impressive strong move up to the tanks by Joe -- brought us up there at some flying 30mph! Only issue this dump gravel field ending in some cut in pavement bump -- looks like it will never get done -- caused a flat on one rider. A few waited up and made sure it all went fine and helped the rider back to the shortly following reassembly point.


From there further flying East and back South to the Cutchogue Deli stop.


Return to Manorville on the South water front of the North Fork, a few nice views of the Great Peconic Bay:


... and a misshap of one rider -- Py and a few more did not saw this (previously on the road in the way, not seen in time) just run over, but one went down, however, he was fine finishing the ride.


Finishing up with the usual race on 51 /111... a strong group including Py finished together.

From there, Py proceeded South towards Westhampton to the GAB meeting... and rode all the way back home stopping by at the Camp for some LN2 refill. That's why this route looks a bit funny -- a total of 115 miles or 185 km.
