The East Bay Bike Path travels a scenic 14 miles along the Narragansett Bay shoreline. It passes through the towns of Bristol, Warren, Barrington and East Providence, linking eight parks along the way. The terrain is mostly flat, and presents a mixture of waterfronts, wildlife sanctuaries, open space and village centers.
We will travel a total of about 20-22 miles round trip. We will travel about 10 miles north towards East Providence, including a short excursion through Colt State Park. We will take a break and turn around in the area near Riverside, and travel south back to Bristol.
There are a few good lunch spots within walking distance of Independence Park upon completion of the ride.
