Fixed in Southern RI!

Anyone who is in or near the Southern end of Rhode Island, feel free to contact me about group rides that my friends and I organize sometimes. Here's a couple pics of the crew from a few nights ago:


From left to right: Early 80's Peugoet Conv, Fuji Track SE, Schwinn Paramount, Bianchi Pista, IRO Mark V, Surly Steamroller, Bella Conv, Fuji Conv... All fixed!

And here's a closer shot of the Surly, Bella, IRO, and Schwinn.


Message me here, or on AIM: DerekVR6!

Well, beaches, scenery, traffic, police (they basically don't care what cyclists do down here), and also a lot of times our "bike gang" doesn't head out until late (10pm-12pm?) and a lot of us wouldn't want to drive up north that late hehe.

Yeah, if i hadn't moved away in '95 I'd be all up ons.

...and to be fair, if Barrington hadn't sucked so bad i might not have been compelled to move half way across the country.

Great I moved out of Pawtucket a month ago... Good timing.

Ill be in the area on the 14th. Do you know of any public transportation to RI that allows bikes? Amtrak is a no go.

RIPTA! the only state with state-wide public transportation!

or ride there, it's not that far.

edit: oh, you're trying to get to RI... since the MEGABUS hasn't reached the east coast yet, maybe the hound?

Not sure OrgFarmCY... where you coming from? You could take your bike apart, and take it as luggage I'm sure.

I'll be coming from a wedding in North Billerica, Ma; so I can get my bike down there on the commuter rail, but I wouldn't be able to bring it home to NY. I'll check out greyhound

hrm... or maybe try posting to RI craigslist and see if there's someone heading toward NY around when you'd want that's got a car - maybe kick them some ga$ or something?

I live in billerica, The commuter rail doesn't exactly go straight to RI, but I'm sure you might have figured that out. well it goes to RI, but I hope you can manuver your way from north station to south station.
