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.
