Strawberry route (updated)

This Father's Day, take a ride along the North Shore of Long Island to the annual Strawberry Festival in Mattituck, NY. Along the way, we'll ride on quiet country roads and have some harbor views. While this is not a flat route, there are no long climbs in the rolling hills of the North Shore. We'll have a food stop at a kosher bagel shop in East Northport. We return to NYC via LIRR, arriving before 7PM (assuming no LIRR delays). I expect us to have perhaps an hour at the Strawberry Festival before we have to continue our ride to the LIRR station for our train home.

Bring your MTA bike pass and $14 for the train ticket for our return via the LIRR. Also $5 for admission to the festival (proceeds to the Lions Club of Mattituck).

Note: due to crowding for the Festival, there are no bikes on trains on the Main Line Sunday June 19th.

The route is split into two parts:
Before lunch
After lunch
