Join Bike Newport’s Summer Bike Camp!
Bike Camp is a one-week program weekdays from 9-3pm for bike riders. We have four one-week sessions starting July 24th. We provide the bikes and helmets needed to participate.
All campers need to know how to ride a bike and they spend a fun-filled week learning about:
- Bike handling and bike safety skills, basic bike maintenance
- Trail and road riding skills
- Scheduled ‘special sessions’ with community partners.
The Big Blue Bike Barn campus next to beautiful Miantonomi Park is our base for the summer, and our staff comes with an expertise and love for biking that delivers a safe and fun time for everyone.
Bike Camp is made possible in 2023 with the generous support of BankNewport, the RIDOT Division of Highway Safety, and the Bazarsky Family Foundation. Our camps are free for the youth of Newport with a focus on children from families with financial challenges. We welcome all participants to contribute what they can from $0 to $500 per week. All donations help to offset the costs of camp and our other programs.
We try to accommodate every child where possible, however, submission of your interest does not guarantee that space is available for your child. Any donations and final registration will be made once a student is placed in a camp week. We aim to do this as soon as possible and let you know.
