This is the Blue intermediate route for the 2021 RINEMBA Fun Ride. Taking you into the Arcadia "back country" Breakheart and Shelter Trails make up one of the oldest classic biking routes in RI. 40 years ago hearty souls were hauling their heavy 26" steel bikes with rim brakes down this route and it's still every bit as good today. Finish off on the flower fields of Midway or combine with the black loop for an epic day.
