And don’t click on anything…
That looks stunning!
Those appear to be actual photos, that you actually took. I didn’t think that was what we were doing anymore…
Looks like some hellish “barefoot-single leg-out of the saddle” cadence drill!!
@AlexEllermann Sir Alex, could you suggest some rides in RI for me? We’d like to ride this weekend and I’m looking for places other than our normal ride in Westport/Tiverton/Little Compton. Regardless of the ride, we’ll end up at Gray’s for ice cream
@RoseYarrow Here is a link to a route that I used last summer.
Happy to help. Can you help me dial it in for you by answering a couple of questions?
- Are you looking for straight-up, skinny-tire road biking or mixed surface?
- What kind of distances do you have in mind?
When I read your first sentence, I thought, “I’m going to send her by Art Cafe.” When I read your second, I thought, “Oh, she totally knows that place.” Also, if you follow me on Strava, you may get some ideas.
Jon, that’s a great route and a great place to park!
Looking for new scenery mainly. We have stayed in LC many times and have done routes heading through Adamsville to Horseneck and back. We’re comfortable with a 30 miler as long as we hit ice cream along the way I have a Diverge and he has a Roubaix so I normally handle the bumpy roads but he can’t; he can go fast but I can’t keep pace with those bigger tires.
Jon’s route is, IMO, one of the best routes on the planet. I truly believe that Ian Boswell should drive down from Vermont to do an On Location on that route. The views are stunning, and there’s so much history!
That said, here are my three favorite RI bike paths:
The East Bay Bike Path. Not only can you get ice cream along the way, but there’s also a great burrito stop right next to the path!
The Blackstone River Bikeway. This feels a little more rural, with fewer pathside amenities like ice cream or lemonade stands. Still, it’s the most beautiful bike path in the state.
The Washington Secondary Rail Trail offers a fun mix of urban, suburban, and rural landscapes.
Super!!! Thank you for sharing!
(I was doing about 2 mph here. Had been dragging a new rider up a hill, then noticed someone with a camera at the top and pulled a pose, hence the bike being perfectly upright and the elbows horribly out)

Making use of a gravel bike by jumping into the woodland for a bit of a change
Aarrgghh…strava doesn’t like me. Won’t let me save this route. (web error code 403, so app issue - why I’m a database techie…). Will try again later.
