    You'll be fine, you stayed in shape skiing right? plus LI is flat.
    Just try in get in a few short rides first to condition your sit bones. Then pace yourself, most riders go out too fast on organized rides then suffer towards the end.

    tele skiing keeps me in somewhat shape but the copious amounts of Guiness counter act that.....the north shore of LI where we are/ride is is like where i grew in Portland, CT.....hills.

    Quattro, with all due respect, while the North Shore has more hills than the south shore....it's still quite flat and IMHO is not hilly as far as riding goes. With that said, I'm not anywhere near my fighting weight and would be huffing a 50 mile ride these days even if it was downhill. Lol.
