Imagine Martha's Vineyard but smaller and add a dose of that Rhode Island flavor, and you'll have Block Island! Join us as we ferry to our destination and then traverse the island to see lighthouses, protected forest, salt marshes, and other natural wonders! We'll also stop by to grab coffee somewhere, and we can either have dinner on the island or when we return back to port. Bike rentals are available for this event.


We will try to cover the 7.5 mile loop on the block island that includes nine stops along major sights at the southern end of the island. Based on left over time and ferry availability, we will try to add another 8.5 miles that wind through some of Block Island's most beautiful landscapes.

Please note that the ferry costs $23.75 round trip and bringing your own bikes $7; these costs will be paid at the ferry, not through Ridj-it.

Charity


Funds raised from this adventure will be donated to the North shore Tour de cure event 2020 hosted by the American Diabetes association who have been working to change the future and make a positive impact in the lives of those who are affected by diabetes. We are committed to participate together and raise money through this inspirational event, not just because over 30 million people in the United States have diabetes, but because so many of us personally know some of them and want to do something about it. If you can't make the adventure, please consider giving here.
