The Lexington coffee and bike shop sounds cool. Like Jim, I rode not so cool through Bellingham, Blackstone and Woonsocket down to the beautiful Bryant University campus. I am curious to visit a small culture and industry museum in Woonsocket. There are several nice looking bistro kind of spots to eat and a nice park by a magnificent industrial era dam. The area outside "the French Quarter" is a little tough but nice enough folks and the urban traffic is moderate and drivers are used to pedestrians and bikes. I pushed east through Woonsocket and returned through Franklin for a nice loop.
