What time is the train you are taking from Penn Station?

Not taking the train

I will be staying at a motel near Babylon the night before, so I will not be taking the train from Penn Station. But, I think there is a train leaving Penn Station at 5 or 5:10am that arrives in Babylon at 6:20am or so that others will be taking. Please check the LIRR schedule to be sure of the times. Regards,

I'll very possibly be on the 5.10 AM train mentioned if you'd like to link up for journey out. (I have to see if a friend can transfer her registration to me first).

A special note about the 100-mile route. We do NOT provide ANY transportation for bicycles or cyclists to get to the Babylon start location - you must get there on your own. We will provide transportation from Montauk back to Babylon or Manhattan for registered cyclists and their bicycles.
Despite our best efforts, the LIRR will not us grant permission to bring our bikes on their trains. For years many cyclists have taken the early train without a problem but please understand that you are at their mercy. Typically, the 5:10 AM train gets you to Babylon at 6:21 AM, which is plenty of time to get checked-in.

Another option? - 6.05 AM train from Penn Sta.

6.05 AM train from Penn Sta gets into Babylon at 7.21 AM - just in time to make the recommended 7.30 AM cutoff for 100 mile start.
I may go for this one if anyone wants to join me.
Call before 9.00 PM Sat or after 5.30 AM Sun if you want to check in with me.
