Crazy Idea

Ever since I moved to Providence, I've been thinking that what it could really use is a bike event to show case the city, its neighborhoods, development projects, history, etc. Of course, i've got the experience of the usually well executed Pedal Pittsburgh to draw on.

As a first step in figuring that out, I'm working out a Providence Perimeter bike ride. I have no idea yet how long such a ride would be, or even if it can be done, and if it would really see very much of the city. Of course, Pittsburgh's tour gives many neighborhoods a miss, even on its longest course of 60 miles, so perhaps being all-inclusive shouldn't be a goal.

Anyone know how to go about getting a bike ride organized?
