The Jones Beach Bike Path is a multi-use path extending from Cedar Creek Park in Wantagh to Jones Beach State Park, a beachfront park designed by Robert Moses. This barrier island park is more than 2,400 acres and consists of 6.5 miles of Atlantic Ocean beach, a half-mile bay beach, a boardwalk, bike racks, showers, swimming pools, concessions, a museum, and an outdoor amphitheater. An extension of the trail continues on and ends at Tobay, the Town Beach of Oyster Bay. This beach is beautiful and less busy, thanks to a punitive parking fee for non-residents. Bikes are not allowed in the beach property, but bike racks are installed at the end of the trail. Because the route is so popular and bikes must be locked to access the beach, a hybrid is the recommended bike for this route, unless simply doing an exercise ride at quieter times of day. This ride can be combined with the previous route, Bethpage Bikeway (CR 30), via 3.5-mile connection detailed in that section.
