Bike Newport will have more than a dozen cyclists biking for Autism in this year’s Bike to the Beach ride, and we need your support to meet and surpass our team’s $10,000 fundraising goal. Our team will ride a metric century (62 miles) from Woonsocket to Newport, helping the New England Bike to the Beach Ride to gather financial support for organizations that provide services to people with Autism here in our area.
Bike Newport is one of those local service providers that Bike to the Beach supports! Every week during the school year, Bike Newport hosts students from Thompson Middle School’s Life Skills Program. We go for bike rides on specialized adaptive bikes & trikes provided by our friends at Bike-On, teach bike safety skills, give opportunities for students to practice basic bike maintenance and repair, and enjoy a range of other fun & engaging activities.
All of Bike Newport’s programs are inclusive and adaptive to the needs of every individual, so whether it’s through our community Open Garage, our internships for Rogers High School students, or any of our valued programs, making bike dreams come to life for all people of all abilities is core to who we are and how we operate.
When you donate in support of team Bike Newport & Bike-On for the 2023 Bike to the Beach ride, you’re directly supporting Bike Newport’s programs serving students with Autism. And best of all, when we reach our team’s $10,000 fundraising goal, that will activate a $5,000 matching gift from a generous Bike Newport supporter. Will you help us reach this achievable goal before September 23rd?
We’re 50% of the way to our goal, and we’re counting on your help to take us to the finish line and beyond. Thank you for donating today to support Team Bike Newport & Bike-On, and for helping us to activate that $5,000 matching gift from a generous donor. Your gift will propel Bike Newport forward, inspire our team as they ride, and help us make bike dreams come true.
