FIRST DAY: Connecticut-Rhode Island Trek

Trekkers met this morning in New York City/Guilford, CT for their 10 day, 150+ mile adventure along the beautiful shore of Connecticut and Rhode Island.  After a relaxing train ride on the Metro North out of Grand Central Terminal the group doubled in size with more bikers joining the group at the Guilford Shore Line East Station.  Over the next week and a half the group will bike to many state park beaches, Mystic Seaport, Block Island, Newport, and the city of Providence.  The group had a picnic lunch in Guilford and got to know one another playing some ice-breaking games.  After a talk about bike safety and rules of the road the group headed east for their 8 mile ride to Hammonassett State Park Campground.
