Long Island features rarely among NYCC rides yet it offers beautiful rides nonetheless, e.g., Tim's Necking on Long Island ride and the Montauk Century. This ride explores the North Fork starting from Port Jefferson zig-zagging to Orient Point and then heads via Shelter island over to the South Fork to Montauk from where you take the train home. Important: - There are very few trains on the Montauk lines which take bikes. However, trains marked on the train schedule as bike trains do allow bikes also on summer weekends, despite what you hear. As alternative to train, you might also consider the bus (Hampton Jitney) as a return option. - Montauk train station does not have a ticket machine, so be sure to have enough cash ($15.25 as of 2008-08) left at the end of the ride for the train ticket!
