A Great Day for a Ride

Wheel full 70px Yesterday was one of the nicest ride days of the trip.  I did a little over 60 miles/100 kilometers.

and some nifty urban riding in Providence.

    • Hi Gustavo- Rhode Island does not allow bicycles on the Pell Bridge. You can get a ferry to Jamestown, but not Narragansett, which is baffling.

      I wanted to ride the rail-trails on and out of Providence anyway, so it’s all good.
