Bike to it.
Summer’s here and the time is right … to bike to it all.
It’s summer in Newport — the floodgates are open and the search for parking is on. Or you could bike to that concert, that mansion, that restaurant, that world class sailing race …
Speaking of which — we’re all heading to the World Match Racing Tour — here in Newport through June 4th. See you there? Leave your car at a Park & Bike Lot and pedal to Fort Adams — there are plenty of bike racks waiting for you at the event entrance.
If you have an event or love an event that needs bike racks, just say the word. We have racks available to borrow free of charge. We want to see them all in use! We just need them back for the Folk Festival — when we park upwards of 1,200 bikes EACH DAY. No kidding. Do you know what music festival in the US has the highest percentage of attendees arriving on bike. Yup. Newport Folk Festival.
While you’re on your bike, you can explore it all. Check out the new Newport County Bike Map. Pick up a copy at any local bike shop, at Bike Newport (29 Spring Street), or at the Newport Visitors Center.
Ride safe. Ride happy. Ride!
