Bicycling in Rhode Island

Updated on September 29, 2009


If the feel of the wind in your face combined with the sights and sounds of nature as you cycle down a winding road gets you excited, then Rhode Island tourism has many must-ride trails. Matter of fact, virtually every region of Rhode Island has bike paths where you can explore the highways and byways. To get you started on your Rhode Island biking adventure, here are a few suggestions.

  1. Blackstone River Valley- In the heart of the Blackstone Valley is the 65 mile bike trail through scenic John H. Chafee Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor. The trail begins on Front Street in Providence and continues on to Manville Road in Lincoln. Along the way, you will see the beginning and continued progress of the Industrial Revolution Canal Town path.
  2. East Bay Bike Path- If you are a bicycle enthusiast (or perhaps you prefer rollerblading or jogging) then this is a path designed with you in mind. The paved path is 10 feet wide and 14.5 miles long spanning the distance between Providence and Warren. As you traverse this path, you will pass scenic locations such as the Providence Harbor, Narragansett Bay, beautiful parks, coastal marshes, and placid ponds.
  3. Wilson Park Bikeway- In the South County region you can enjoy this 1.5 mile bike path. The winding path travels around the perimeter of the 75 acre Wilson Park. The Colonial town of Wickford’s quiet beauty offers a variety of picnic spots, hidden coves, and waterfront rest spots, should you wish to get off and explore the antique stores and many one of a kind shops.

Other Rhode Island bike trails are the Coventry Greenway, Washington Secondary Bike Path (Coventry), the Ten Mile River Greenway (Pawtucket), Block Island, Conanicut Island (Jamestown), or the William C. O’Neill Bike Path (South County). So, grab your bike helmet, water bottle and camera and get ready to roll!

      This sounds fun - might try it instead of Kentucky again (see Biking Across Kentucky). Not sure I'm in shape but RI is a beautiful state and well worth my effort I'm sure. Glad I found your hub.
