Evening Ride on the Blackstone

This path has Quite a bit to offer.  Water Falls, Canals from days of old, with wildlife, the Blackstone River, to name a few. The path is relatively flat, with just one  incline.  The total ride is 22 miles, but I start in the middle, so you can go less, if  you need too.

When I Ride Bike Paths, I usually split into several Groups.  This allows everyone to go at a speed they are comfortable with.

The last time we were here, they still did not get a replacement for Dunkin Doughnuts  & Baskin Robbins.  The sign said, that the Tourist Center will close at 5 pm.  This means NO Restrooms.  There are some at one end of the path, near the Soccer Fields,  but I can not guaranty they will be open.

Directions:  The Tourist Center is only Accessible from Route 295 North.  It is Located between  exits 9 & 10 on Route 295 North.  from the Worcester Area,   146 South to Route 295 North.  The  Tourist Stop, is just ahead about 1 mile or so.  From the East Bay, 195 West, 95 North, 146 North, Route 295 North.

If you are coming from  the North, I would go 295 South, I would get off at Route 146 & get on 295 North. ( Not exactly sure how that works, but i know it is doable. Sounds like the last words of Johnny Knoxville or Steve O.  ).   The Tourist Center is just ahead about 1 Mile.

    Nice Weather for an Evening Bike Ride. The only thing missing, was the " Enforcer " Yelling at People, Walking on the Wrong side of the Path. LOL You know who you are.
