This ride starts at the Boathouse and takes the Brooklyn Bridge out of NYC. The ride cruises the south shore of Long Island by the ocean along Merrick Blvd and parallel to Sunrise Highway (Montauk Century route) until turning inland at Bellmore. It then heads over to the north shore through Roslyn and out to the tip of Sands Point via Shore Road to the Port Washington train station for a one-way trip to NYC. Metro North/LIRR bike pass and one way train fare is required.  RWGPS route uses more bike lanes in Manhattan & Brooklyn than author's original cues.
