Saturday Bike Ride

A fine day for a bike ride in Rhode Island today.  The East Bay Bike Path had lots of users on bikes, running, skating, and walking.  Sunny, 70 degrees and no wind made this a great opening day of the bike season for many.  The Fall River Bike Committee was out riding along with the Narragansett Bay Wheelmen doing their weekly Saturday morning Cafe ride.

Freighters were unloading in Providence and the glistenting waters of Barrington were flat and calm.

The annual Midnight Marathon Bike Ride, a tradition that has attracted a swell of bike enthusiasts since it was founded, will take attendees along the 26.2-mile course in the dead of night this Sunday — hours before runners line up for the race.  read more
