Thanks to generous gifts from People’s Credit Union and Tretorn, Bike Newport brings you: BIKE POWER! With two generators attached to stationary bikes and one battery to store electricity, we’re able to harness the clean energy generated by pedaling to power all kinds of appliances. Hop in the saddle, pump the legs, and let the power flow!

Jingle Bikes takes place each holiday season at Bowen’s Wharf. The pedal-powered Christmas trees at Santa’s Workshop are a rare sighting this side of Copenhagen. Jingle Bikes is made possible by numerous community supporters who want to provide Newport’s residents and visitors a fun way to get physical after those hefty holiday meals while lighting the night for everyone’s enjoyment! People’s Credit Union sponsors the bicycle-powered generators. Bowen’s Wharf provides the perfect place. Newport Bicycle contributes the bicycles. The host organizations and musicians provide refreshments and entertainment. And the people power the trees!
Newport Folk Festival
