CycleThe Suffolk Bicycle Riders Association is Long Island's largest cycling club. Organized in 1977, we are a club made up of all ages and cycling abilities. Active members enjoy riding together year round in a relaxed and friendly group atmosphere. Our rides range from short, easy trips for beginners, to moderately-paced tours with snack breaks, to fast, challenging rides for the more competitive minded. Volunteer club members organize group rides, leaving from various locations throughout Mid-Suffolk and the East End. Their routes provide us a wonderful variety of places to tour and explore.


SBRA promotes cycling of all abilities for health, fitness and fun. Come ride with SBRA.

    DOT Public Information Meeting Thursday, September 5th

    As a cyclist (and past recent member of SBRA ) I wanted to let you know about a planned project that will create a dangerous situation for SBRA along a very popular cycling route.
     
    The D.O.T. is planning entrance and exit ramps on and off Sunrise Highway onto Barnes road in Moriches. As you are aware Barnes Road is a winding, uneven farm road with very slight if any shoulders and no sidewalks for pedestrians. The planned expansion will place a vast amount of traffic onto this roadway with no improvements to Barnes Road to support the project. East and West Corridors are the life blood of Long Island with the need for evacuation routes for areas such as Mastic Beach Peninsula requiring an unimpeded Route (Bridge over RxR tracks) for a South / North corridor. The proposed project addresses neither but will make Barnes Road, a roadway that already sees vehicles averaging 40 to 50 mph on a 25 to 30 mph posted roadway into a death trap. As a First Responder in this Community I would place this section of roadway amongst the top few most dangerous for accidents.
