Hi there and happy Friday.  I'm very interested in participating in the block island event.  Will the Saturday exploring of block island be on bike?  I'm solo so I'm a little concerned about not having a "buddy" for the weekend.

Hi Martin, this is a new trip for OutCycling so we'll all be figuring it out together. But yes, absolutely, we plan to bike on Block Island on Saturday. Feel free to sign up!

Website says that I am registered for the ride and i requested a queen room.  Please confirm that everything is final.  I just received another email asking me to register again?  

Dan S.

August 15, 2022


Hi Martin, yes you are confirmed. But there's another queen room available. The email you received is just an alert that there's a new comment on the ride page. See the comment chain for context.

Hi All,  I just registered but its actually myself and my husband so does he have to register separately? And how do I select the room?

Dan S.

August 19, 2022


Hi Evan, thanks for registering. Yes, your husband will need to register separately and we'll reserve the queen room for you two. Thanks!

Thanks for the pre call last night.   We decided we around reserve our ferry rides individually.   9.30 to BI 4.30 return?   Is someone sending a link or do we just go to the Jerry site directly?   

Dan S.

August 25, 2022


We decided that we would figure all that out when we're together tomorrow since there's no real urgency. See you then!

Martin G.

August 25, 2022


Sorry for the confusion.  I must have jumped off early.  I ended up buying ferret tix for the 9.30 departure and 4.45 return.  I'll assume it all works out.   Have a great day.  See you all tomorrow.   Have a great day.  Marty
