I asked a couple of friends to join me on this 30 mile out and back ride starting in Providence R.I. along the East Bay and into Colt State Park. I wanted to give my touring bike a good shakedown to make sure everything is good before my upcoming short tour of Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard. No takers, and I have to say they missed a humdinger of a ride. Everything was near perfect, sunny, mild, no wind and plenty of people willing to chat.
The MUP got pretty busy when the local school let out. Lots of kids ride their bikes to when there is a safe bike way nearby.
