Newport - Block Island - Montauk by ferry & bike

Sorry.... but it's my first time posting a question and I realized the subject heading wasn't clear on my previous posting.

I am planning a solo trip to East Hampton and would like to get there by ferry and bike and leave the car in Newport, R.I. The only difficult part for planning this trip is that I don't know how difficult it would be to cycle from the Montauk ferry to 2 Holes of Water Road in EAst Hampton. The rest of the trip should be fine. I recently went to Block Island by ferry from Newport and found it was much more comfortable than the ferry from Pt. Judith. The Viking Fleet ferry arrives at 6:00 pm in Montauk. According to Mapquest, it is 13 miles from the Montauk ferry dock to my destination in East Hampton. My question is: Is it possible to bike this distance of approximately 13 miles? (at 6:00 pm)

I would like to make this trip by using ferries and a bike from Newport, R.I. and leave the car at the Ft. Adams parking lot. Otherwise, I would choose to drive to New London and take the car on the ferry to Orient Point. Please offer any suggestions for this trip.

Thank you.

Your plan sounds like fun actually.

Since you've posted twice here, and since the question really involves the distance from the Montauk ferry to your destination in East Hampton, I would put a post in the Montauk or Long Island forum.

Good luck

Thanks for your advice, JDP, I'll do that. I've always wanted to see how far along the East coast you could travel by bike and ferry. This is a starter trip.
