This ride draws a figure-eight loop around Newport and Middletown. The first half follows Ocean Drive along the magnificent shoreline jutting out from Newport. The second half passes from Newport's splendor and bustle into the quieter countryside and charm of the island's southwestern end. You might consider doing this ride in the spring or fall, due to heavy traffic in the summer. Terrain: flat coastal roads, with a few gentle rises. Some heavy traffic in summer. Traffic/Safety: the return section on the longer ride has a 2.5 mile stretch on Rte. 138, a busy, four-lane road. Riders not comfortable on a highway might prefer to turn around and retrace the route.
