Anyone interested in off-road bicycling must visit Montauk's Hither Woods. Located at the western edge of the village, and running to the beginning of the Napeague Stretch, Hither Woods is over 3,000 acres of diverse oak woods, grass lands, walking dunes and sandy beaches. Hither Woods is a priceless natural resource, offering hikers and bikers year round access to unspoiled nature.
Montauk has lots to offer to the recreational rider. Montauk's roads are very bike friendly, wide shoulders and light traffic, how much better can it get? To answer my own question, much better and its all still in Montauk! From Montauk Bike Shop in the heart of the village you can rent a bike and take the Mecca to the point (11.4 round trip) passing the Deep Hollow Ranch the oldest cattle ranch in the US and not much more except lots of, trees, green, and ocean and Long Island sound views. With your ride out and back and some time at the point to visit the beach you can expect an hour and a half expedition. You can add some time and beauty to your journey by visiting Camp Hero and soak up some incredible views of the point, Turtles Cove, the cliffs, and of course some just plain old outstanding views of the ocean and beaches.
What do you say about going out on a century ride and never see a stoplight within a few hours of NYC? A dream, not possible? Come to Montauk and sample it for yourself. Even in the height of the season you can still go out for a road ride and find extended mileage with light traffic and no traffic lights! Picture a nice four mile warm up on wide shoulders through the heart of Hither Woods, turning off to a sparsely traveled back road surrounded by wetlands on both sides with views of a sparsely populated Napeague harbor. Then swing onto a road through the “Promised Land” a dune riddled wonderland heading into mature forest with a very expensive residential area nestled next to 1950’s vintage summer escapes all again lightly populated and light on traffic, reaching the mid way at a beach that is never a crowed spot.
Montauk has lots to offer the Triathlon community. We have three of the most beautiful races in the northeast here in Montauk. One sprint in July, one Olympic in June, and one Half Iron in October. The season opener for the north east is the Mighty Montauk Triathlon and is one of the oldest running triathlons in the country, for that matter the world
Montauk Bike Shop is in the business of providing fun in the sun for visitors from New York and around the world. We are located at the eastern most tip of Long Island's south shore, surrounded by water on three sides and in the middle of thousands of acres of park land with some of the most diversified ecosystems in the world, ­ and no traffic lights.

We carry a large selection of high quality Giant bikes for sale and rental including both full and front suspension mountain bikes, hybrid touring bikes, road bikes, tandems, kids bikes and trailers to suit your needs.

Montauk is world renowned for its history, beaches, boating, fishing and especially surfing. There is so much outdoor activity in Montauk that you are spoiled for choice, so come in and ask us about our tours, the local trails or just advice on what to do, we are more than happy to accommodate you.

An other popular junket is the trip out to the dock aria (8 miles round trip) and a good choice for the younger members of your tribe.
