The 2022 40th Anniversary Gold Coast Tour was a complete success thanks to everyone who participated. An event of this scope cannot happen without the very much appreciated contributions from the following groups:

  • The Volunteers- This special group of people who gave their time, shared their experience and valuable input to make the Gold Coast Tour run smoothly. Thank you to those who helped with the Tour planning, event set up and clean up, food service, SAG rider assistance and our Ride Leaders and Sweeps.
  • The Riders- Thank you for riding! We welcome our new members to the Huntington Bicycle Club and hope that you join us on club rides that are posted on the HBC website ride calendar. Thank you for completing the rider survey. We appreciate you and value your feedback. Based on your responses, we will be making vast improvements to the 2023 Gold Coast Tour to better support the riders.
  • The Sponsors- We thank you for your continued support of the Huntington Bicycle Club and for making this day possible. Your Donations, Handouts for the goody bags and Bike repairs at the beginning and the end of the ride contributed positively to the support the riders received.

Sincerely,

Steve Labiner

The Huntington Bicycle Club Gold Coast Tour has been a revered North Shore cycling event for over 38 years. Our various bicycle routes wind their way along the beautiful and historic North Shore of Long Island from Great Neck to Huntington. The Long Island Gold Coast, as it was called, was a favorite retreat of the rich and famous. Starting at about the turn of the 20th century and through the 1930’s, the North Shore was a virtual Who’s Who of High Society. From the Astor’s to the Vanderbilt’s, this was the place to be for some of the most notable Americans. The mansions constructed during that period numbered in the hundreds, and many are visible on the Gold Coast Tour.

The Gold Coast Tour draws cyclists of all ages and ability levels from Long Island as well as NYC, New Jersey and Connecticut.

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Kids Need More, Camp Adventurean organization of concerned parents who created a camping experience for their children diagnosed with cancer and their siblings. Camp Adventure now serves the east coast and tri-state area. It remains one of the only camps of its kind to serve child cancer patients and siblings.  www.kidsneedmore.org
