There’s a lot more to cycling in Rhode Island than just the East Bay Bike Path. If you’re more than a casual cycler and like to participate in exciting, competitive races, check out these great competitions—many of which go toward a good cause! Bike through scenic Rhode Island at one of these great cycling races in the state.
The National MS Society hosts this race, which they organize across open country roads and expansive Rhode Island coastal scenes, all during the warm month of June. The race lasts two days, and you’ll also stay overnight in University of Rhode Island’s dormitories.
Thousands of cyclists join in cities around the world to raise money to support MS research. Little Compton hosts Rhode Island’s local event, and their race takes place in September. The course will be fully stocked with rest stops and bike mechanics—it’s all taken care of for you!
