Episcopalride: Tour de Harbor

A Tour of Episcopal Churches from Hempstead Harbor to Cold Spring Harbor
May 19, 2013
Hosted by: Long Island’s North Shore

You are invited to join Bishop Larry and Jeanne Provenzano in celebrating National Bike Month and the start of summer with an invigorating 20 mile bike tour of six Episcopal parishes on Long Island’s North Shore on May 19 (Pentecost Sunday).  The Tour de Harbor is a ride from Hempstead Harbor to Cold Spring Harbor. 

Commencing at Trinity Church, Roslyn at 2:00 p.m., the route includes visits to St. Luke’s, Sea Cliff;  St. Paul’s, Glen Cove; St. John’s, Lattingtown; Christ Church, Oyster Bay and St. John’s, Cold Spring Harbor. The ride begins with a blessing of the bikes and concludes with a brief, contemplative Eucharist at St. John’s, CSH at 5:00 p.m. with a pasta dinner following.

You don’t have to cycle to participate! We also need volunteers at each parish to assist with the pit stops, to help shuttle cyclists, to drive SAG (support and gear) vehicle and to help with dinner.  To register for the Tour de Harbor, please fill out this online form: http://tinyurl.com/stjcsh519.

Although the ride is not excessively long, it is not appropriate for novice cyclists.  The route makes use of safe backroads, but the terrain is definitely hilly.  It you are uncertain of its appropriateness for you and your riding ability, please contact the Rev. Luke Fodor (lfodor@stjcsh.org or 516-692-6368) to discuss your situation and with any other questions.
