Be a part of the RI Waves Campaign
RI Waves is a new, statewide road safety campaign that encourages everyone – pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists – to wave and confirm they’ve been seen at all road crossings.
The message is positive, friendly and inspiring – we can all be safer on our streets when we Stop, Look & Wave at every crossing.
Newport’s Big Blue Big Barn!
Ever since our field trip with Newport community leaders to the Red Shed in Olneyville (video here) we’ve been making steady progress on the Newport version: The Big Blue Bike Barn.
in addition to the original strategy grant, Rhode Island Foundation awarded us $10,000 to ensure green infrastructure at the upcoming facility.
The work will include adding solar, collecting rainwater and fabricating furniture from locally sourced wood. We’ll keep you posted on more progress as it happens. Meanwhile check out this Newport Daily News article for the latest. Find out more.
Our many community partners include: Newport Housing Authority, City of Newport, Aquidneck Land Trust, Newport Health Equity Zone, Roger Williams School of Architecture AIAS Chapter, Newport County YMCA, Aquidneck Island Community Table, Gambrell Landscaping, Sunbelt Rentals, Reynolds Dewalt, Standard Modern, Newport Solar.
In addition to the Rhode Island Foundation, generous funders of the Bike Barn and our youth education programs in Newport’s North End include: RI Department of Transportation Office on Highway Safety, Powered by Prince, van Beuren Charitable Foundation, the Merritt Neighborhood Fund, Gruben Charitable Foundation, RITBA Foundation, EJMP Fund for Philanthropy, and many more generous community members.
