Cycling In Montauk - Recreational Riding
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.
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. It is a very flat ride with a Ben and Jerry's pit stop at the halfway point with many other distractions like the home of Montauks fishing fleet. Always something coming in here. This is a couple of the main attractions but there are other rides of all distances. Stop in the shop and we can tell you were to go! Nicely of course!
