Register for the 
3rd annual Elliot Kaminitz Father's Day Ride
Sun, June 21st, 8am-noon


The third annual Elliot Kaminitz Father's Day Ride is just around the corner -  Sunday, June 21st, 2015! This year, you can start the day stretching and saluting the sun with Newport Yogis - and then join hundreds of cyclists as we ride the scenic coastline in celebration and support of safer cycling. With 6, 10, and 25 mile ride options, as well as a 2-mile Bay Walk, riders of all levels can participate. Kids will enjoy the "Tour de Fort", inside Fort Adams - sponsored by the RI Department of Transportation. And the 6-mile loop will be coned off and escorted - great for the less experienced riders. All Bike Newport members receive 15% off registration (forgot the member code? Email Liza)! Register Here.

New this year: FEE WAIVER available on the registration form. We want everyone who wants to ride - to ride. Register Here. 

Volunteers still needed! Contact Liza.

Bike Newport's new event racks are on site waiting for you! Please use the Beacon Hill Road entrance so you can start the self-guided tour at the beginning.

Ten Speed Spokes Longest Day Ride
Thurs, June 25th, 6pm

Registration is open for Ten Speed Spokes' Longest Day Ride on June 25th at 6pm. As always, the ride is free and this year they'll feature the Honky Tonk Knights playing live honkytonk, country blues, rockabilly, country, bluegrass, and roots rock at the shop after the ride.

Host-With-the Most Tip: Get a guest bike(s)!

It's guest season - when far-flung friends and family come to crash with us and share that RI summer magic. Don't let your guests experience Newport from behind a windshield! Get some guest bikes for your house this summer. You can earn or adopt a restored bike from our Bike Garage fleet, and support Bike Newport's educational programs in the process.
