Cyclists wanting a clear ride on state bike paths during the winter will have to wait until the snow melts.
The Chief of Rhode Island State Parks, Robert Paquette, says the state does not clear bike paths during the winter. “You know, people use them more for cross country skiing in the winter so we don’t plow them, liability reasons. We don’t use salt because a lot of them go to water areas. And so there are many different reasons why we don’t plow our bike paths.”
Paquette adds the parks department will make sure the paths are clear in time for spring riding.
