It’s that time of year! The best winter party in Newport – once again at the amazing Midtown Oyster Bar! There will be live music, great food, a silent auction, Velosprint racing, and of course, piles of oysters. Come dance to Slackwater String Band and Los Duderinos brought to us by Common Fence Music. Get your tickets here. This year, all funds raised will support our Community Bike Projects – where we reclaim abandoned and discarded bikes, which are then repaired or harvested for useable parts with the help of our volunteers. Anyone can come in and tap into shared knowledge, tools, and used parts to repair or build their bikes. Everyone can gain from biking – it’s an affordable, healthy and fun way to get around town. Lots of participants keep coming back for more, and to share their new knowledge with others. Bike Newport’s Community Bike Projects help every kind of rider and every kind of ride, so we can help put more people on bikes in Newport. We are working to make Newport a more bicycle friendly city – through infrastructure, road safety education and more people on bikes! Join us on March 16th at Midtown Oyster Bar! If you are interested in donating to the silent auction, email Brian.  The post Bike Newport Night 2017 – Support Community Bike Projects! appeared first on Bike Newport.

A Guide to Protected Bike Lanes & Snow

We’ve heard from public works departments and RIDOT that one of the main things holding them back from putting in more protected/separated bike lanes is uncertainty about how those bike lanes will be plowed in the winter. So this post READ MORE
