We're at a Turning Point for Bikes

Dear Bike-Friends,

You Can Help Support Our Vision

We at Bike Newport believe that bikeable, walkable roads and routes are key ingredients for economic growth, quality of place, and quality of life. Your support will continue to make this vision possible.

 

In our End of Year Campaign in 2018, 150 generous gifts totaling $25,000 and a beautiful magic wand that doubled it all means we’re off to a wonderful ride into 2019. You helped us make this happen!
Thank you for sharing our vision and for supporting more, better, and safer biking!

You can continue to make this vision happen. 

 

 

What does a bright future for bikes look like on our island? Have a look at some of the exciting projects on the horizon:

Pell Bridge Ramp
A people-friendly redesign of adjacent roads will improve biking and walking to better connect neighborhoods, business districts, and other destinations.
First Mile Bikeway
Our upcoming multi-use path will provide car-free passage and be the first step toward a full-length island bikeway.
Big Blue Bike Barn
Our new and expansive educational bike hub for learning, riding, and building bike culture.
Bike Share
Easy short-term rentals will elevate bikes for transportation and reduce the need for cars in town.
Ocean Loop Bikeway
A safe route to enjoy the beauty of Newport’s coastline.
Bike and Pedestrian Bridge Paths
Making progress toward the dream of walking and biking across Narragansett Bay.
As more people consider living, working, studying and visiting in Newport, what are we doing to attract and accommodate them? Will our roads and historic neighborhoods continue to be clogged with car traffic and parking stresses? We believe that building low-cost, high-return infrastructure for biking and walking will directly improve community health and prosperity.

Today we stand at a turning point: we can create communities and streets that welcome people, increase safety and encourage biking and walking. The six projects described above represent a great leap forward in this vision: we welcome your support to make these ambitious dreams a reality!
