South County Bike Path is a Simple Field Trip from Green Hill, RI
We’ve cycled the South County Bike Path many times over the years. And each year it gets better and better! Our morning routine typically starts out with a breakfast of champions at Phil’s in Wakefield. We love the pancakes, but be sure your eyes are not bigger than your belly, since 1 giant pancake is perfect!
If you want to ride but have no bike, fear not. Just make your way over to W.E. Stedman Company Bicycle Shop at 196 Main Street Wakefield. It’s a full service bicycle shop located in the heart of Wakefield, RI. Even if you are looking for something as simple as a flat fix or air in your tires, they’d love to help you out. They have all kinds of programs and rides to check out, which we plan to do int he seaons ahead. When we do, we will report right back. I’m particularly interested to learn more about their Tuesday Night Ladies Ride.
