Mid-Week Skiing with Gary Schorr


The 2021-2022 ski season is in full swing. Those retired or who can take time off from work will enjoy trips to our local ski areas on weekdays when the crowds are smaller. We normally carpool to several areas upstate including Hunter, Windham, Belleayre, and Catamount; however, due to the Covid 19 situation, carpooling may not be appropriate for everyone. Those wishing to carpool can meet at 6am in Christopher Morley Park, just off exit 36 of the LIE. Email Gary at gss12@optonline.net to receive notices of these mid-week ski day trips.

Cross Country Skiing

Two Skiers

Are you interested in a local cross country ski outing? Last year the opportunities for skiing on Long Island were pretty limited; however, maybe we'll have a better season this winter. Destinations would probably be Bethpage State Park, or another local public site. Contact cruona@yahoo.com if you want to be notified of when a cross country ski outing is planned.

Mid-Week Biking with Neal Pisanti


The 2021 bicycling season has wrapped up. When it resumes this spring, our members meet mid-week for trips that are usually range from 10 to 30 miles.

Most rides are announced by e-mail on Sunday night for the following Wednesday or an alternate day, weather permitting.**Helmets are required and water or another hydration source strongly recommended.** Please feel free to ride with us. No one will be left behind. If you would like to join in, e-mail Neal at nealmichael@hotmail.com .
