Well, the Rhode Island Bikeway is relatively safe (until my group of Geriatrics show up!), but since “Olga’s Cup and Saucer Cafe” closed in East Providence as a caffeine destination, we’ve been back on the streets. Fortunately, I ride a LOT of back roads near me where there’s not much traffic around the upper Blackstone Valley.
This really made me chuckle, though>. “I commuted to work on bicycles for 15 years and only had a few accidents.”
Yeah, me too....for 12 yeahs. I only remember the two bad ones (well, the worst one I can’t remember much of). The four or five minor ones were mostly getting car doored by parallel parkers and besides buckling their door hinges, they got a severe tongue-lashing from me (it was usually epic and highly un-printable).
BTW @Michael Pickett you can now ride the Blackstone Valley Greenway from downtown Worcester all the way down to Newport via the Rhode Island Bikeway. A long way to go for a lobstah roll, but a very nice ride.
