About This Activity

Come join us on one of the three rides along the most beautiful coastline in North America. The "10 Mile Ride" passes Fort Adams, Hammersmith Farm (where the Kennedy's spent their summers) the road then follows the Atlantic Ocean coastline onto Bellevue Avenue, the home of many of the finest mansions in New England. The 25 mile ride continues along Purgatory Chasm , First and Second beaches and into the lavishly landscaped countryside. Our 45 mile ride Around Aquidneck island covers the same scenic roads as the 25 mile ride but then brings you to the Sakonett River Bridge as well as the Mount Hope Bridge, before returning on Middle Highway, where you are exposed to water views of the Narragansett Bay and inner harbor views.
