This Sunday’s Ride

NBW #131 The ‘Bridge’ Ride

Harrisville – Uxbridge – Douglas

Sutton – Whitinsville – Northbridge

16, 28 & 44 mile routes

Name for the towns along the route — not for any bridges crossed — this ride explores the NW corner or RI and the small towns of Sutton and Uxbridge, MA. The 50 mile rides goes down Purgatory Chasm (watch for wet leaves on descent) into Northbridge. Ride through woods and farmland, with some great views (on a clear day see Mt Wachusetts)

How often do you see directions to Purgatory?

With the changing of the clocks, sunset comes earlier to Whitinsville

Our arrower reports that arrows are yellow. The high school has a one way traffic pattern, and we leave via the rear exit, turing left onto Whipple Ave. Lets try to next start the ride properly. The GPS address of the start is the Burrillville High School, 425 East Ave, Harrisville, RI

Notes from arrower: Watch out for wet leaves, both riding on them, and their covering of arrows. Don’t cross the yellow lines.
