Celebrate the end of winter and get ready for spring with a bike party of epic proportions! Bike Newport Night: THE FIRST MILE will have oysters, indoor bike racing, live music by the Slackwater String Band and Los Duderinos, and a stellar silent auction â€“ all for the low price of $10. And everybody who comes is eligible to win a $2,500 hybrid electric bike from IE Cycle!
Join us at Midtown Oyster Bar this Thursday, March 19th, from 6:00-9:00pm.
All funds raised will support the advocacy work needed to make a much-needed, off-road bike path in Newport a reality!
Going to the Chamber of Commerce Emerging Leaders of Newport County event downstairs at Midtown (5pm)? Get your 2-for-1 ticket at the entrance.
