Blackstone River Bikeway Blasts, May 9
The ride started out gray , overcast and dreary – wasn’t looking too great for a bike ride . However, as the afternoon went on the sun eventually came out just in time to warm us a bit on our bikes and provide a spectacular pink and gold sunset after the bike ride. Wildlife abounded, muskrats, mallards and a blue heron – Oh My! We also learned many interesting things from Mark Dennen , especially about the rock formations along the way.
Woonsocket is the start of next week’s Bikeway Patrol ride. As you pull in to the driveway for the bikeway, notice the veteran’s monument and the old smokestack from the Glendale Mill. The land once owned by them has been repurposed into soccer fields and a mini golf course. We will be riding to Manville where you can find a kayak/canoe launch to the Blackstone River at Sycamore landing. Friends of the Blackstone claim this as their landing spot and will be having a monthly meeting at the environmental center there. Come join us as we explore the history and current events happening in this vibrant wooded corridor!
