BRISTOL, RI) -- What could have been
The bike path starts in the great City of Providence, then goes through posh Barrington, busy and interesting Warren and ends in Bristol, a beautiful town with Patriotic pride, historic buildings and homes, and great little shops and restaurants.The 10-ft. wide path is exceptionally well-maintained and bikers seem to be more respectful than those on certain Massachusetts bike trails that seem to have a maniacal sense of self-entitlement and ownership of the given path. It's a relaxing experience, with a chance to view various perspectives of the Bay, cross pleasant bridges, rest at welcoming benches, and places to eat along the way. If you're lucky, a Del's Lemonade truck will await you with some fabulous frozen lemonade -- we had such fortune at the Colt State Park entrance to the bike path where we started our mini-trip through the Bristol part of the East Bay Bike Path.
So natural, so scenic, so New England, the East Bay Bike Path is indeed a great introduction to viewing the New England coast while getting great exercise whether riding the whole path or just a portion.
Visit the Rhode Island State Parks Web Site for more information on the East Bay Bike Path, including how to access the path and directions on how to get there.
