Scenery

This is great back-road route my friends and I take all the time to bypass the traffic on Sunrise Highway which can be unbearable in the summer. Passing through the Shinnecock Hills golf course, you ride along great Peconic bay and little Peconic bay, eventually crossing Noyac bay and Sag Harbor bay into Sag Harbor, a great little town to stop and get some refreshments. The next segments bring you into some backwoods of the south shore of long island, and spending on the time of year, you may see some deer and wild turkeys. As you make your way to Fresh pond rd, there's a great photo op from the beach parking lot overlooking Napeague bay. As you come to the end of this bypass you will see one remaining radio tower of two that were used for ship-to-shore communication during WWII

Drive Enjoyment

All of these roads are good quality, paved roads, suitable for my big Harley Touring bike, a few sharp turns so be careful!

Tourism Opportunities

There are not too many places to stop along this route, with the exception of the Sag harbor area. The Elizabeth A Morton Wildlife Refuge has clean bathrooms, and it's also a very cool place to stop if you have time. Wild birds will eat bird food from your hand, but you have to remember to bring some. There's also a deli off of Noyac road if you need some refreshment before reaching Sag Harbor

Motorcycle Road Additional info

This is a slow, easy going back road route but far more enjoyable then being stuck in east-end traffic on sunrise highway!
