You may come and go as you like (see the ferry schedule), but we'll meet up at the times and locations listed below.  (The first ferry departs Manhattan at 10 am; The last ferry leaves Governors Island for Manhattan at 7 pm. There are also ferries to Brooklyn.) 
1 pm:  Meet at Liggett Terrace (map link below) for lunch (food available for purchase or bring your own lunch) 
3 pm:  Meet at the base of “the Hills”; Those who want to climb the 70 foot mountain (you can’t ski down!) can and others can hang out and relax at the bottom and keep an eye on the bikes! 
5 pm:  Meet at Governors Beach Club (map link  below) for an après-bike (refreshments available for purchase. You may purchase alcoholic beverages onsite, but you may not bring them.) 
Look for the Red Club Flags at the 1 pm, 3 pm and 5 pm meeting places. How about everyone wear something RED so we can find each other?  
by ferry from Manhattan or Brooklyn (please be advised that if you are coming from Brooklyn, there are some departure location changes for the month of May) 
Won’t you please register on the club's website, because that gives us an idea of how many people to expect.  There is no limit to the number of people who can participate.
