MEMORIAL DAY MORNING RIDE
Have you been hankering to give the Group Ride a try – how about tomorrow - Memorial Day Monday morning? Join us for a ride around Ocean Drive and then to Sachuest Point Wildlife Refuge in Middletown.  It’s going to be a lovely morning and we’ll be joined by our friends from the Fall River Bike Committee. The ride is leisurely, about 25 miles – ride all or part. Meet at Touro Park (Bellevue/Pelham) at 8:45am. Depart 9:00am. Bring water, a snack and your camera. We’ll end the ride with refreshment at Empire Tea and Coffee on Aquidneck Avenue and have you back in time for your barbecue. 

CHECK OUT OUR NEW COMPANY CAR
Wow! Bike Newport is the happy recipient of a generous gift from A2B. This hot little electric-assist number will help us to get more people and stuff where we need to go.  Those errands that were just a little more than the bike could handle, just got some help. And our cycling friends who would join our group rides if it weren’t for those pesky hills – well, they may just be back in business. BIG THANKS to A2B, Ryan Maccione, and local A2B dealer, Newport Bicycle. Pictured:  Mike Mendell and Bari George, before and after the hat swap.
“This Way on Bellevue”
The original art on the cover of the new Bike Newport Map is available as a poster, free to all who sign up for Bike Newport Membership (choose Free or “Perk” membership).  AND a limited number of signed/numbered posters are available for a contribution of $20.  We are so grateful to our friend, local artist Rafael Medina, for creating such a delightful illustration to benefit Bike Newport. For a free print, join Bike Newport; for a limited edition signed print, contact Bike Newport.
