Explore Newport by bike – More Riding, Less Hassle!
Leave your car and bike right into downtown, saving money and headaches.
Nothing brightens our day like trading cars for bikes – the cyclist is healthier and happier, the roads are less congested, and our historic city is treated a little more tenderly.
Explore destinations all over Newport – from Miantonomi Park and the historic Point neighborhood at the north, to Fort Adams and the scenic Ocean Drive at the south, with dozens of parks, shops, galleries, and museums in between.
Park your car before you get into the heart of town and into one of our legendary traffic jams. You can wind your way in using our many scenic neighborhoods and boulevards.
