Montauk TRIPLE Century??? 200+ Miles in a weekend???

No biggie for this club, right? Congratulations to the team 16 cyclists including the leaders that put this together and made it happen.

A model for others to follow. Lots of pics on Facebook, check them out and if you were on the trip, please add more!

And here is a summary of the experience from the creative spark behind it and the leader who pulled it all together with the team that went, well done Shawn et al!

The 2015 5BBC Montauk Triple Metric Century weekend trip was a huge success! Sixteen members started Saturday and rode 65 miles (more or less) from NYC to Southampton. The suitcases had been collected ahead of time and transported out by car, so it was easy riding!

In Southampton, a charming Victorian farmhouse (with a Jacuzzi for those tired muscles) became our home away from home for the weekend. Sunday we had a gorgeous ride of about 65 miles out to the Montauk lighthouse, sampled the local beer and seafood, then fought some headwinds back to Southampton (with a stop for lobster rolls on the way!).

Monday, we closed down the weekend with another 65 mile ride back towards NYC. It was an incredible, friendly, supportive group of riders and much fun was had by all.

We can't wait to do it again next year! And I can't wait to try and join it next year too!
