Itinerary

ARRIVAL INSTRUCTIONS :
Embark from Point Judith on the Rhode Island coast on the early afternoon ferry to Block Island.

Day 1:

Embark from Point Judith on the Rhode Island coast on the early afternoon ferry to Block Island. Enjoy refreshments and ocean views at our hilltop inn while your guides fit your bike. On the first island ride, take in a setting the Nature Conservancy termed one of the “Last Great Places.” Later, enjoy tapas, cocktails, and views from the veranda at our island retreat before heading to Great Salt Pond for a beautiful sunset boat excursion. After, enjoy dinner at a top Block Island restaurant.

Biking Mileage: 10

Day 2:

After breakfast at the inn, bike a coastal route passing wide beaches and salt-water ponds. Walk trails in the Block Island National Wildlife Refuge at the island’s tip. Follow sand trails to the North Light, a scenic lighthouse. Next, pedal through idyllic island landscapes to New Harbor for lunch and, after, an eco-kayak adventure. Paddle through a salt-water bay and estuary, observing and learning about the many plants and animals that make this ecosystem their home. Those who choose to stay on land may enjoy additional cycling, a walk along the bluffs, a lounge on the beach, or a little shopping in town. Enjoy fresh seafood and more at tonight’s fine restaurant.

Biking Mileage: 11 with extended option

Day 3:

Following breakfast, ride to Southeast Lighthouse and the majestic Mohegan Bluffs. Then pedal to Old Harbor and enjoy lunch on the ferry back to the mainland. Bike from Point Judith along the Rhode Island coast through the resort community of Narragansett, with its wide sandy beaches and impressive mansions. Next, explore tranquil Conanicut Island, first settled by Native American tribes of Wampanoags and Narragansetts. From the island’s quaint village of Jamestown, hop on the ferry to Newport (summer). Arrive at our historic inn in the heart of the Old Quarter, then enjoy dinner together at one of Newport’s fine restaurants. Finish the day with a lantern-light walking tour of Newport’s waterfront and historic streets.

Biking Mileage: 34 with extended option

Day 4:

Without a doubt, it will be hard to say goodbye to the inspiring sights offered by Rhode Island’s stunning coast and idyllic isles. Bike a spectacular cycling route past commanding yacht clubs, pastoral sheep farms, seaside estates, and rocky headlands. Arrive at the world-renowned Breakers mansion and enjoy a tour of the interior and grounds. After, walk a section of the famous oceanside Cliff Walk before returning to the inn to shower and check out. Transfer by van back to the vehicle lot, the train station, or TF Green Airport.
