5th Annual Woonaquatucket Watershead Ride

It was a crisp sunny Saturday bike ride in support of the Woonsquatucket Watershed Council in Providence.  Two hundred fifty riders set out from downtown using staggered starts for the 62-50-30-10 and 5 mile options.  The Council provided valet parking for bikes, a band, food and swag at the finish area of Waterplace Park.

The ride was a nice mix of bike path and low traffic urban and rural roads.  A couple of the highlights were Blackstone Boulevard, the Blackstone Valley and Burriville bike paths.  Riding through the city of Pawtucket was a tease to the coolness of riding through the Brown University area and downtown Providence.

There are some great and unique rides available to those in this part of New England and the Woonasquatucket Watershed ride easily ranks with the NYC Five Boroughs and the Midnight Marathon rides.
