Manhasset Bay separates Cow Neck and Great Neck, two large peninsulas containing more than a dozen North Hempstead villages and hamlets. On the eastern border of Queens, and well served by the Long Island Rail Road, villages range from tourist sites to bedroom communities. This ride is the second hilliest in the book, with a total elevation gain of 1,409 feet. None of the individual climbs are particularly challenging, with the total gain spread over a dozen or so efforts on the route. The hardest section is near the end after a pretty section of Sands Point, where a rolling stretch of road climbs to a peak of 187 feet over 2.0 miles. Starting in downtown Manhasset, follow Bayview Avenue for a fast descent down a narrow road. When the water comes into view, bear left to continue on Bayview Avenue in a wide shoulder along the Manhasset Bay.
