Guide to Rides

It's tough finding places to ride, especially if you're new to the sport or area. No one wants to risk an entire ride going bust because of a boring location. Of course, you can always call or stop in for advice about what and where to ride (we all love adding our two cents about the best local rippers), but if you don't have time, check out the links below for a great starting point. 

Road/Triathlon Links: Key International Triathlon site. 
Blackstone River Bikeway Get plans & updates on the construction of this segment of the East Coast Greenway that will run from Millville, Massachusetts through Woonsocket and Pawtucket to connect with the East Bay Bike Path for a whopping total of a 31.9 mile-long RI bike path. A 13.5 mile segment in Lincoln is done, and it's the state's nicest all bike linear park.
