  • Is there a close-up map of the route somewhere? I can only find really zoomed-out maps. We should also make sure that Google maps cycling directions suggests that route (if it doesn’t, we can submit a suggestion).

  • The only maps I have seen (improperly) route on Taft St. underneath I-95. Taft St. is of course closed in this area. IMO the detour is a bit daunting for novice riders especially in a group. I’m sure the organizers have planned for this, but I would try to make the 945 departure from Lippit if you want to do the ride between there and the Pawtucket Visitor’s Center.
