With bicycling to the beach the ultimate symbol of summer ease, perhaps it’s no surprise that clothing shops along East Hampton’s two major thoroughfares, Main Street and Newtown Lane, were cheerfully decorated last week with cruisers of every description. The hues of the tops, dresses and slacks had shifted from brights to neutrals in anticipation of the new season, but the promise of warm and breezy afternoons at the shore lingered on.
