Join us on Wednesday, November 20th to celebrate Newport’s Bicycle Friendly Community award at City Hall! The commemoration will be hosted by Mayor Harry Winthrop and attended by the City of Newport, Rhode Island Department of Transportation, Bike Newport, Newport Police Department, schools, preservationists, historians, youth and community members.
Following the commemoration (weather permitting), we will lead a bike ride around town and enjoy a reception at Fifth Element. Bikes will be provided by Newport Bicycle for anyone who would like to ride. Here’s the route we will take, heading east first:
We know Newport has a long way to go in its quest to become bike friendly, but this is an amazing start!
