Date Idea, Meetup, Social Good, Sports & Active Life
Join us for this bike ride and enjoy maritime views, coastal wildlife, and a smooth trail with a 22.6 mile ride on the East Bay Bike Path. This particular rail trail shaped transportation all over the Northeast during its heyday, but now it's one of Rhode Island's most beautiful pedestrian and bike-friendly paths. You’ll pass Watchemoket Cove, Squantum Woods Park, and popular fishing spots. This is truly a beautiful ride and goes 11.3 miles in one direction, but you do not need to ride the whole trail. Once you register, we can exchange contacts and you can meet us at a particular part of the trail or you can leave early in the adventure. Because this trip does not require your full participation of the full 22.6 mile ride, it is labeled as “easy”. We will head south and turn back after two hours.
A quick note
Although many of our trips have access to bike rentals, it is nearly impossible to find a local one by the path. Many shops are not currently offering bike rentals in the area, so if you need a bike rental, you'll need to bring your own or rent elsewhere.
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 join us for this adventure, please donate here.
