FLEET 448
LONG ISLAND BIKE RIDE

Saturday October 3rd 9:00 am sharp


Come and join the members of Fleet 448 on a bike ride through the beautiful island of Long Island.
If you have never been to this beautiful Island, here is your chance.
Come One, Come All!
We will be sailing to the Island on Long Island Ferry from New London Ct. The ferry ride is about an hour & 20 minutes long.
Bring some cash for lunch and shopping. We will be starting the bike ride in North Fork, then off to Who knows where,
seeing this will be my first time on Long Island in the North Fork area. Some of us will be meeting up at
the first rest stop off route 95 south bound in Connecticut to load our bikes in John Smith’s van, if you wish to meet us.
The time to be there is 8:00 am sharp. If you can’t be there, we’ll meet you at the ferry.
