The East Bay Bike Path, filled with amazing views of the Narragansett Bay, abundant plant life and the always great feeling of being by the Rhode Island coast. It's amazing how an abandoned railway can turn into a scenic, recreational treasure, ideal for bicyclists, joggers, in-line skaters and walkers. The bike path starts in Bristol, a beautiful town with Patriotic pride, historic buildings and homes, and great little shops and restaurants. Then goes through posh Barrington, busy and interesting Warren and then to Providence. The 10-ft. wide path is exceptionally well-maintained and bikers seem to be more respectful than those on certain Massachusetts bike trails that seem to have a maniacal sense of self-entitlement and ownership of the given path. It's a relaxing experience, with a chance to view various perspectives of the Bay, cross pleasant bridges, rest at welcoming benches, and places to eat along the way.
The average speed of this ride should be between 13 & 15 mph. I recommend Road bikes or hybrids. Please make sure you have a helmet or I cannot allow you to ride with our group. The total mileage is about 29 miles so plan your schedule accordingly.
