Ct Riverwalk & Bikeway, Springfield
I know this is a bit far but it's surely a nice ride along the Connecticut River in Central Mass. A 5.4 ml ride one way, so a little over 10 mls r/t. The first sections of the Connecticut River Walk and Bikeway, a 3.7 mile segment in Springfield and a 1.7 mile segment in Agawam, are now open to the public. The longest river in New England, the Connecticut River is the Pioneer Valley’s most prominent natural asset. For centuries it’s been a source of regional identity and pride. But in recent times we’ve been cut off from the river by flood control dikes, railroad tracks, Route 5 and Interstate 91. The Connecticut River Walk & Bikeway has been conceived to revitalize the Connecticut Riverfront, restoring it as a focus of life in the region. Trail Access and Parking: Visitors may park under I-91 near the Riverfront Park entrance at West Columbus Avenue and State Street. Find additional entrances to the Springfield portion of the River Walk & Bikeway at: West Columbus Ave. just north of the South End Bridge, via the pedestrian bridge at the Basketball Hall of Fame, Riverfront Park on West Columbus Ave. & State St., West Street (Route 20) & Riverside Rd., Wason Ave. and Riverside Rd. INFO: To help everyone enjoy the River Walk, there are some basic rules: The River Walk is only open during daylight hours. Pedestrians and handicapped persons always have the right of way. Bicyclists are required to obey all traffic laws and signals. Please be particularly careful crossing Route 20 and only cross using the button to activate the crossing signal. No racing on the River Walk. Be courteous of other trail users. Bicyclists and skaters should give audible warning when passing others. No motorized vehicles are allowed on the River Walk (other than maintenance, police or emergency vehicles). Pets should be kept on a maximum 6-foot leash and under control. No alcoholic beverages allowed on the trail.
