Few activities are as enjoyable and rewarding as riding a bicycle.
Bike Newport offers a variety of rich cycling experiences for riders of all types. Whether you’re new to cycling, want to ride your bike to work/school or for recreation, Bike Newport aims to inspire people of all ages and backgrounds to experience the joys of cycling not only in Newport but wherever you go.
Bike Newport’s cycling education is based on the League of American Bicyclists “Smart Cycling” program. This program relies on League Cycling Instructors (LCIs) who are trained to deliver a variety of course material aimed at increasing rider confidence and allowing safer riding at all levels.
Pandemic update: We are offering all services through our back door to minimize exposure risk for our customers and staff. At the moment the public are being asked to come in one at a time. Prioritization is to safety repairs and individuals whose bike is their main mode of transportation.
Open Garages are community oriented, welcoming of everyone and volunteer driven to support a DIY approach to understanding and fixing bicycles.
Visitors can come in and use our knowledge, tools, and used parts for free to repair or build their bikes. The hope is that visitors leave with a new, affordable, healthy and fun way to get around town!
Community oriented, the Open Garage helps everyone understand and fix bicycles. Anyone can come and share knowledge, tools, and parts to repair and build bikes for free. No mechanical experience required!

This program is on pause during Covid. It will resume as soon as as is possible.
You can come to any Open Garage, volunteer three hours of labor, and then build yourself a bike for free using our collection of frames and gently used parts!
Donated bikes are always coming through with lots to choose from in different levels of disrepair – they just need your love (and elbow grease) to get them back on the road!
You can also Adopt-a-Bike for a suggested donation. Message us your needs.
