The Blackstone River Bikeway is scheduled to be a 17.1 mile by 12-foot wide scenic bike-path under construction by the Department of Environmental Management (DEM) and the Department of Transportation (DOT).

The southern end of the Blackstone River Bikeway will eventually link to the popular East Bay Bike Path, making a continuous 31.9 mile route for alternative transportation.

Attractions - Tours are available of the Blackstone River.

Recreation - Blackstone River Bikeway offers a 17 mile bike path for the physically fit and unfit among us.

Climate - The large bodies of water surrounding Rhode Island make the climate temperate, although high humidity does exist. Summer highs usually average near 70 degrees F, with a few days, usually in July and August, reaching 90 degrees. Nights along the water can be cool, but usually temperatures remain at a comfortable level near 60 degrees. Winter temperatures average near 30 degrees for daytime highs. Snow is often changed to rain as it reaches the coast and doesn't last long if it does fall to the ground. The wind can be bitter during the winter months so be prepared with a wind breaking jacket.
