Friday May 18th • 7:00am • City Hall

Bike to Work Day is an annual event held on the third Friday in May all around the world promoting bicycling for daily transportation. Here in Newport, we’ve been celebrating Bike to Work Day since 2011. Today is the day to give Biking to Work a try! Leave your car at home, hit the saddle and turn your commute into a workout. Bike to Work Day brings the community together to celebrate bicycling as a fun and healthy way to get to work. Bike with family, friends or colleagues to Bike Newport’s Bike Commuter Breakfast and end the day with a city loop group ride. All activities take place at City Hall.
