RI 12 and 116

Out of what I've ridden in RI, these are two of my favorite roads. Both pretty wide open with little traffic and great fast sweeping curves. You can get on RI 12 East off of Rt. 102. The first portion is fast and flowing with some elevation change and woods on either side, with no side roads to worry about people pulling out from. Keep an eye out for deer though. It gets a little settled towards the end, so keep the speed in check when you start seeing houses. The road goes over a dam and ends up at an intersection of RI 116. The dam is pretty......damn......nice (see what I did there?). You can either head north or south on 116 at this point, depends on where you're headed. Either way gives you a great ride through the woods. The problem with RI is that it's so small, the roads aren't very long, so the rides take you on a ton of different roads which means a lot of intersections and stopping. Meh, what can you do?
