2016 Triple Crown Tour of Long Island

Sunday October 16, 2016

THERE IS NO RAIN DATE THIS YEAR! Understand that if the event must be canceled due to weather, there are NO REFUNDS! The money will be donated to CLIMB as usual. Rocky Point closes on 10/31 and SWE is not able to hold this event in the remaining weekends of October beyond 10/16.

Time to mark your calendars for the 10th Annual Triple Crown!!!!

Come on down to ride Glacier Ridge (GR), Rocky Point (RP) and Cathedral Pines (CP) all in the same day!!

This is NOT A RACE, but a friendly gathering of folks from home and abroad joining forces to put in some saddle time and experience 3 of our trails here on the island. If you are racing the 6 Hours of CP race this November, this is great training and for the "out of towners" it is a great way to familiarize your self with Cathedral Pines.

You have plenty of options on this ride and riders of all abilities are encouraged to come have some fun..........

There will be a group, led by Jeff, that will meet at CP lower lot at 7:00am and ride the road over to GR, do the loop, then on to RP, do the loop and finally back to CP to complete the loop there. Finally, we will head to the Mill House in Yaphank for lunch and refreshments. (Total Mileage: 60-65 miles)

The other riders will form sub groups and ride at whatever pace they like and drive from trail to trail and the end of each loop. A rider will be leading the caravan of cars to each trail. (Total Mileage: 45 miles)

The rules of the day are that we will meet at each trail head and not begin the loop until all riders are present. Once a trail is completed we will wait in the lot for all riders to finish up, at which time the "road riders" will move on to the next trail. The "driving riders" will meet us at the next trail and so on.

We will be providing fruit, cookies, snacks and water at each trail head at the beginning and end of each loop.

This event is being brought to you by Something Wicked Events LTD. We had to charge an entry fee as to purchase an insurance policy in order to hold the event. The additional money raised will be donated to CLIMB to be used specifically at the Rocky Point trail system. this money will be used for future trail projects, maintenance, signage and tools/materials.

All traffic law will be adhered to while traveling on the roads between trails!!!

Here is a loose itinerary for the day:
  • 600am: Road Riders meet at CP lower lot and check in at registration.
  • 615am: Riders that will be driving meet at GR to check in at registration.
  • 700am: Depart CP on bikes and head to GR
  • 730am: Loop at GR with entire group once all riders starting from GR have checked in.
  • 945am: Depart from GR and head to RP
  • 1015am: Loop at RP
  • 1215pm: Depart RP and head to CP
  • 1245pm: Loop at CP
  • 200pm: Mill House 
Of course these times are a guess and by no means should be taken as cut offs. All riders will be given ample time to finish their loops.

Rain cancels this event, as does rain from the previous night.
