Trip Guiding / Event Fee: No, I will not be asking participants for money

Difficulty Level: Moderate


Please join us for a day of cycling 15 miles around the beautiful rolling countryside of Block Island.  Most riding will be on paved roads but there could be short sections on dirt roads where larger tires might be better.  Highlights include North Lighthouse, Southeast Lighthouse, Vail Beach and Mohegan Bluffs.  Make a weekend out of it and book local accommodation for the nights of Friday 29 and Saturday 30 September (and Sunday night 1 October, as well, if you want to join us for a nice long weekend).  Sunday I'll lead a walk on trails at Clay Head for those who stay the weekend and might be interested in a bike/hike event that day.

Driving directions to the location and spot to meet at:

For daytrippers, please pack your lunch and get yourselves to Point Judith/Galilee RI by 8:30AM in time to park your car and get tix for the 9AM departure ferry to Block Island ( for complete directions on how to get to the ferry).  Once you've disembarked, please make your way to 215 Chapel Street (Island Manor Resort) and Unit #19/20.  For those weekenders already on the island, please get your lunch at the Island Grocery (or elsewhere) and meet us at Island Manor Resort (Unit #19/20) on Chapel Street by 10:30AM.  After meeting up with the daytrippers and getting lunches stashed in the apartment, we'll head out on our adventure.  Morning ride out to the North Lighthouse and back; afternoon ride looping around the southern part of the island.  Afternoon ride followed by Happy Hour at my timeshare unit.  Dinner @ 7PM for those on-island and the 7PM ferry for those heading back to the mainland.
