Well, that was fun!
Thanks to all who came out for last night’s Bike Newport Night! Together we raised over $3000 for “Night Bright”: our inventory of night safety equipment for our bicycle-dependent workers. Many Bike Newport supporters left with arms and pockets heavier with raffle and silent auction prizes – including Grand Prize Winner Jen Sannes and her beautiful Cannondale courtesy of Newport Bicycle! (pictured here – Jen with her Cannondale and Braden of Newport Bicycle)
