The Suffolk County Historical Society in Riverhead will host its third annual “Let’s Make History” bicycle ride on Sunday, Sept. 19, rain or shine.

The ride begins at 8:30 a.m. in the public parking lot at Court Street and Osborn Avenue, directly behind the society building. Riders can choose scenic round-trip routes of 25 or 50 miles, both of which pass by farms, vineyards and quaint North Fork villages. Refreshments will be available at all stops.

Registration is $25 in advance; $30 on event day. All proceeds benefit the historical society. Riders under 18 must be accompanied by an adult and those under 15 ride free. The first 200 registrants receive commemorative T-shirts.

To register, visit suffolkcountyhistoricalsociety.org and go to the events page or visit active.com and type “Let’s Make History Bicycle Ride” in the search bar. For volunteer/sponsorship opportunities or more details, call 727-2881 or e-mail [email protected]
