Coming soon – Newport’s Big Blue Big Barn!
Modeled on the successes of the Red Shed in Olneyville, the new Bike Barn will dramatically increase the size of Bike Newport’s current North Side Bike Library – from one 20’ container to two 40’ containers – quadrupling the size. Clean up of the site adjacent to Miantonomi Park has already begun, ground work is happening very soon, and plans to have programs this summer are well underway. We’ll keep you posted on the progress. Meanwhile check out this wonderful Newport This Week article for the latest.
LET’S MAKE OUR STREETS SAFER.
Pedestrian. Bicyclist. Motorist.
All on the move. All going places.
Let’s get there safely with a wave!
2017 was an amazing year of progress and we have you and all of our partners, supporters and participants to thank. We reached our end of year campaign goal of $25,000 which was matched by a generous donor! With a successful campaign we’re ready to take on the New Year with continued progress on the First Mile Bikeway, city infrastructure, safe road sharing education, and so much more.
Leave your car and get on your bike before you ever get to downtown. Learn more here.
Check out our routes and maps page to get to know the City and to choose your route along the most suitable roads for bikes.
Newport Waves is a new campaign to make the city’s streets safer. The proposition is for all road users – pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists, skateboarders, and others – to acknowledge one another with a simple, intuitive, and friendly gesture. A “Newport Wave.” Watch the video here!
