Party for a Bike Path!
Bike Newport Night 2015: THE FIRST MILE

Once again, it's time for our annual winter bike party and we're bringing it back to Midtown Oyster Bar! Bring your dancing shoes and join us for food, live music, raffles, silent auction, indoor bike racing, and more. All funds raised will support the advocacy work needed to make the much-needed, off-road bike path in Newport a reality! 

This year's Grand Prize Giveaway is... wait for it... a hybrid electric bike generously donated by Newport's newest bike shop - IE-Cycle! Everyone who attends Bike Newport Night has a chance to win! 


Heading to the Chamber of Commerce Emerging Leaders networking event that night? Come on upstairs for a discounted $8 ticket! 

Do you have a contribution for our silent auction? Would you like to volunteer at the event? Email Liza
