This rail trail stretches north from Providence, RI, and will eventually reach all the way to Worcester, MA. It's less crowded than Providence's popular East Bay Bike Path, making it easier for kids new to cycling to navigate. The historic Blackstone River has many sites of interest along the route, highlighting the river's rich industrial history. Benches overlook dams and waterfalls, providing good spots for a water break or a picnic.

Most kids want to learn to ride a bike, and it's an easy way to get them into the fresh air and exercising, but could it have more than the obvious benefits? Cycling will help your child develop their leg muscles and strengthen their bones.

A great way for kids to go out and ride a bicycle on their own. People needs to send away their kids to play some outdoor games which is necessary for their physical as well as mental strength.
