Description

Now in its 37th year, the Huntington Bicycle Club Gold Coast Tour has been a revered North Shore cycling event. Five distances ranging from 12 miles to a challenging century ride wind their way along beautiful and historic North Short of Long Island from Great Neck to Huntington. The Long Island Gold Coast, as it was called, was a favorite retreat of the rich and famous during the Gatsby era of the Astors and Vanderbilts, and there were hundreds of mansions constructed during that period. We'll ride past many of those (and McMansions as well) on a ride that is fully supported with rest stops for refueling, road marshalls looking to help out, and SAG wagons if you bonk.

A portion of the proceeds will be donated once again to Kids Need More Camp Adventure, a non-profit organization of concerned parents who created a camping experience for their children diagnosed with cancer and their siblings. Camp Adventure now serves the east cosast and tri-state area. It remains one of the only camps of its kind to serve child cancer patients and siblings.  www.kidsneedmore.org
