Overview


With an impressive network of hundreds of back roads-most paved but not heavily traveled-Rhode Island offers ideal cycling for enthusiasts of all levels. Beyond the Providence metropolitan area, the landscape is rural enough to give the cyclist a sense of remoteness and serenity, and yet the nearest town, village, or grocery store is never more than a few miles away. While the rides in this updated edition are essentially the same, they have been thoroughly rechecked to ensure that all paths still exist, and two popular rides from earlier editions-the spectacular Putnam-Woodstock-Thompson ride in nearby Connecticut and the relaxing Seekonk-Attleboro-Mansfield-Norton ride-have been dusted off and updated for this sixth edition. Each ride includes precise written directions, excellent route maps, level of difficulty, mileage, safety tips, availability of food and facilities, and vivid descriptions of points of interest. No matter what your experience level, you'll be sure to find the perfect ride in this book!
