Pull your bike out from its winter nap in the back of the garage and join Newport in celebrating National Bike To Work Day on Friday, May 20. Held on the third Friday of every May, the national event aims to promote both a healthy and environmentally friendly way of living.
Since 2011, Bike Newport has sponsored Bike to Work Day throughout the City by the Sea with a roster of exciting, bicycle-centric events. This year features a Bike Commuter Breakfast at Washington Square, a city-loop group ride and much more.
- 7:00-9:00 AM: Bike Commuter Breakfast provided by Howley Bread Group, Washington Square Cafe & Baking Company, and A Market.
- 4:00 PM: Announcements and Awards
- 5:00 PM: City Loop Group Ride -- 1.5 miles around Newport
- 6:00 PM: Cycling Celebration at 29 Spring Street, the brand new Bike Newport location
Not to worry, if you're too far to commute by bike, take advantage of various Park n' Bike lots located throughout town. Park your car, get on your bike and ride to Washington Square for a prepared-for-you breakfast to begin the day.
