Next to a tricked out DeLorean, the preferred mode of transportation through time is a bicycle headed toward an electrified swimming pool as its rider wonders aloud about history.

Join the Blackstone Valley Tourism Council for the second annual Leisurely Bike Tour, tracing a laid-back path through the historic Blackstone River Valley, which saw the birth of the American Industrial Revolution. Throughout the three-hour tour, which takes off from Pawtucket Visitor's Center, cyclists cruise through four Blackstone Valley communities while noshing on historical tidbits imparted by tour guide and Blackstone Valley Tourism Council president Robert Billington. Feast eyes upon historic sights such as Pawtucket River, King Phillips War battle sites, and a 13-foot-tall tomahawk and the grave of the 78-foot-tall warrior who wielded it. For mid-cycling sustenance, the Blackstone Valley Tourism Council fills each belly with complimentary water and an energy bar.
Those who select the July 23 outing can choose to upgrade to a lunch for an additional $10, which is not included with this Groupon.
