WORTH NOTING Wheeling through history

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]
