Triangle ride

Wed, 10/17/2007 - 6:38pm by Andy Shen

Triangle ride. Little Neck Parkway and the LIE service road weekends at 8.30. Pretty social until it heads north, when they make the turn onto Turkey Lane it gets tough. Saturday is easier than Sunday. Usual mix of characters, some smooth, some sketch. Mostly nice guys, some bozos, basically what you get anywhere. Anyone have any more info, please comment...

I did this ride for years before I moved to California. They used to do different times for the weekend depending on whether it was daylight savings or not. During Daylight savings they also do Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6PM. The multilingual thing was fun, made me feel like I was really in the Euro Peloton. The Tuesday Thursday group was huge... like 50 60 guys somethimes. I never found it that dangerous and if you were a regular the whole group would stop if you got a flat. There were a few different routes that we did. All were exciting. The local cops used to harrass us... it was really unwarranted as even though we took up the whole lane we always went at least as fast as the traffic. I've got very fond memories of this ride. I would bet its one of the best rides in the North East.

come on guys, get the time right.........

What days?

WHEN do they start the season?

& what time do they depart?

Seems the minute the thermometer finds it's way under 60 degrees, all the 8:00ayem guys disappear....where do they go?

Triangle ride is the best ride on the Island.

Don't Forget us 8:00 Guys

Smaller and almost non-existent off-season , our group leaves a half hour ahead of the fast(er) guys. 20 to 30 riders or more on warm days, usually breaks up as a lead group pushes the pace. Turkey is also a place where the men are separated from the boys.

A very international flavor exists here and a host of languages can be heard along the way.

Fun but dangerous

I stopped riding the Triangle ride. It seems there is a crash almost every week on that ride due to riders who have no idea how to ride. The vast majority of the riders are good riders but there is always one idiot who can't keep up and feels the need to squeeze up on the right. Also pretty poor ride for pointing out holes in the road.
