The East Bay Bike path is a 14.5 mile, 10 foot wide, ribbon of asphalt that provides a safe place for unobstructed cycling. Users can enjoy the sights, sounds and smells as the path takes them by coves and marshes, over bridges, and through State Parks.

Directions:  Route 95 south toward Providence to Route 195 East, take Exit #4 / the exit forks, stay Right Riverside / follow Veterans Memorial Parkway and you will see a Large Parking Lot on the Right. ** There are 2 parking lots on the pkwy each about a 1/4 ml away from each other**...get there as early as you can because RIDOT has closed down the bike path along the bridge so RI commuters will probably use these parking lots as well to get on the path.

    Kim will it be confusing finding one another with 2 parking lots?

    April 18, 2013

    • Kim

      Na, if this happens I will let ppl know what parking lot I am in and ppl will need to stay put, personally I am shooting for the first parking lot.

    I've been watching the weather, ITS suppose to rain in a.m. but don't know when its suppose to stop, should we make this later in day or bike Sunday? Let me know what you think?

      Another group is doing this on Sunday, which I had invited last week for Saturday but they made their own, I'm just concerned for the parking overcrowdedness if its moved to Sunday.

    Will be riding one way, 14. 5 miles, or round trip, twice that distance? (or some other combination)

    April 10, 2013

    • Kim

      Thanks Norman I think RI changed their link addresses to some extend thru the course of the months. I put these rides up back in Nov.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
