Farmington-Milford Bike Route

Here is the bike route for our ride to Milford on September 2nd. Again, we'll leave the UConn Health Center at 8AM on Saturday morning and ride down to Gulf Beach in Milford (at the intersection of Old Field Ln and Gulf St).

Please join us for our Welcome Home party at Archie Moore's in Milford from 12-5 on Sat. 9/2! For driving directions go to

Here is a link to the map of our bike route, written directions follow:

Leave the UConn Health Center and travel West on Rt. 4 (Farmington Ave.) 2 miles to the junction with Rt. 10.

Follow Rt. 10 South all the way through New Haven to the Long Wharf Area. Turn Right onto Kimberly Ave. just before the I-95 underpass. 35 mi.

Here the directions get a little complicated but if you just keep the Long Island Sound on your left you will get there! The ride finishes at Gulf Beach in Milford (at the intersection of Old Field Ln and Gulf St)

Turn Left onto First Ave. (Turns into Beach St)

Turn Right onto Washington St. then immediately Left onto Captain Thomas Blvd. 38mi. Captain Thomas Blvd will turn into Ocean Ave.

Turn Left onto New Haven Ave (Rt. 162). 41 mi.

Turn Left onto Merwin Ave. 42 mi. Merwin turns into Edgefield Ave, then into Melba St, then Bayshore Dr. Continue straight until you reach a T-intersection.

Turn Right onto Westland Ave. 44 mi. Then turn immediately Left onto Welch's Point Rd.

Welch's Point Rd turns into Gulf Street. Gulf Beach will be on your Left at about 46 mi total riding distance (at the intersection of Gulf Street with Old Field Ln).

At Gulf Beach you can join us as Ben and I dip our front tires in the Long Island Sound to complete our cross-country journey. To continue to Archie Moore's from Gulf Beach simply continue straight on Gulf Street (or, take a Left onto Gulf Street out of the Gulf beach Parking Lot).

Turn Left at the first light onto New Haven Ave.

When you first get into downtown Milford (you'll see the Town Green ahead) Turn Left onto Factory Lane. Archie Moore's is just a stone's throw from the intersection of Factory Ln with New Haven Ave. Total Distance: 47 mi.

I hope to see you all there, at Archie's if not for the ride itself!
