The annual 10-Spot Ride on Saturday, August 26th, 2023, was a thrilling celebration of bikes, the local community, music, delicacies, and more! We welcomed 300 people on bikes to a variety of properties from downtown patios to the deck of a schooner, from tiny secret gardens to expansive oceanfront views, from the 1700s to the 21st century – a splendid variety that mirrors Newport’s vast array of experiences.
…together created a delightful adventure for all!
