Our ride will cover approximately 5 to 7 miles, about 50/50 on hard pack dirt trails and paved roads. Almost any bicycle in good working condition (good brakes, air in tires) can handle this ride, though some gears will be useful as we take the gentler grade up from the river shoreline back toward town. This will be a casual ride, good for singles, couples, and families with older children comfortable in traffic or in a child seat, trailer, cargo bike, or on a tandem. The pace will be a toodle. There will be local history highlights as we visit not one, not two, but four parks! Pete and Toshi Seeger Memorial Park, Long Dock Park, Denning's Point Park, and Madame Brett Park. All in 5 beautiful, leisurely miles. We'll start at Bank Square Cafe and then head down to the River. The ride will end at the Howland Center, near plenty of cafes and small eateries!
