Bike Newport Night 2018
We wouldn’t want a snowstorm to keep anyone away – so we’re hitting our brakes and dismounting for a week – we hope you agree it’s a good call – and WE’LL SEE YOU ON THE NEW DATE – WEDNESDAY MARCH 28TH! Winter will be officially behind us and there’ll be bike racks waiting for your wheels :)
Everything else is the same: Same great host MIDTOWN OYSTER BAR, same great time 6-9pm, same mad music with LOS DUDERINOS and SLACKWATER STRING BAND, same AMAZING AUCTION items – though that could get even better over the next week – and same celebration of bike progress!
We’ve got an extra week to gather more folks, more cheer, and more focus on BUILDING THE BIG BLUE BIKE BARN. Every penny raised will help us build and run program. The kids are waiting!!!
Bike Newport Night 2018 will be the best EARLY SPRING party in Newport!
There’ll be singing, swinging and lots of merriment as we celebrate Bike Newport and fundraise for the upcoming Big Blue Bike Barn! Fantastic food, amazing auction items, VeloSprint Racing, the best live music by Slackwater String Band and Los Duderinos, of course, piles of oysters!
Don’t miss out on the annual tradition, the ‘GRAND PRIZE BICYCLE RAFFLE’.

All proceeds will help us build the Big Blue Bike Barn. Remember the Bikes and Gardens video? Check out the dream here.
We’ve got an incredible new location for the Bike Barn on the north side of Miantonomi Park thanks to the generous partnership of the Newport Housing Authority. There will be direct path connections into the park thanks to the City of Newport and Aquidneck Land Trust. We’re already planning exciting new programs with the Newport County YMCA and Boys and Girls Club. Come to Bike Newport Night to see the sketches, pitch in for the funding, and sign up to help raise the Bike Barn this spring!
HUGE thanks to all of our fellow dreamers and doers. The kids are super excited about this amazing new facility and all the program that goes with it.
So COME TO BIKE NEWPORT NIGHT and HELP MAKE IT HAPPEN. The kids are waiting!
