Join us for Plike Newport: an Aquidneck Island Earth Week event

PLIKE! [verb]To pick up litter while biking.

How it works:
-This event begins & ends at Bike Newport HQ.
-Gather at Bike Newport HQ between 10-11am, collect cleanup tools, enjoy local treats, register for prizes.
-Bike around town, to the beach, or to a park to pick up litter.
-Bring your litter back to Bike Newport HQ in your backpack. We will sort & weigh all collected litter!
-Everyone must return by 2pm latest.

What you need to bring:
-Your bike, helmet, water bottle, and a backpack or pannier.
*Would you rather participate on foot? You can plalk (pick up litter while walking) or plog (pick up litter while jogging)

What we will provide:
-Cleanup supplies: gloves, reusable bags to line your backpack, map of heavily-littered areas
-Fuel! Coffee & pastries
-Water-filling station

Please note:
-Go at your own pace - this is not a race!
-Masks are required.
-We will ensure COVID compliance with hand sanitizing and 6-ft social distancing.
-If you don’t have a bike and would like one, consider getting one from Bike Newport’s Adopt-A-Bike program a few weeks ahead of time. Contact Allyson (allyson@bikenewportri.org) to learn more!

If you have any questions, email hannah@bikenewportri.org
