We’re excited to be partnering with the Newport County Community Mental Health Center‘s 7th Annual Tour de Newport on Sunday, September 27th, an event dedicated to the memory of Sgt. Michael F. Paranzino in honor of his ultimate sacrifice for his country in Kandahar, Afghanistan.

Sign up to ride!

Riders can choose 10/25/45 mile distances, all starting and ending at Rogers High School. This family-centered, health-focused, outdoor event is to support the continued provision of NCCMHC’s greatly needed outpatient services and 24 hour, 7-day-a-week emergency services which allow NCCMHC to respond to children and adults experiencing a mental health crisis, and to support local law enforcement and the hospital emergency department.

Learn more about NCCMHC and the ride here. Military discounts are available.

Hope to see you there!

Dear Friends,

Important meeting: THIS THURSDAY, May 28th, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm, the Portsmouth Town Council will receive public comments about the proposed Aquidneck Island Bikeway Design.

The hearing will take place in the Portsmouth Town Council Chambers, Town Hall, 2200 East Main Road. If you support this project, your presence will be most valuable.

While Bike Newport works toward the first mile of off-road bike path in Newport, our colleagues at the Aquidneck Island Planning Commission (AIPC) are working from the north for a combined on-road and off-road bikeway that will provide a continuous corridor for bicycle travel along the west side of the island. You can view the Design Study Report HERE.

A presentation of the design study will open the meeting. Speakers will then be invited to speak – first-come, first-served – to share their opinions for up to three minutes.

This is an opportunity to share with our community leaders in Portsmouth that biking is good for the economy, environment, public health, and quality of life and place – AND that all road users benefits from improved road sharing and protected bikeways.

The design study for Portsmouth is available HERE, and at the Portsmouth Town Hall (2200 E. Main Rd.), the Portsmouth Free Public Library (2658 E. Main Rd.), and AIPC (437 Broadway, Newport).

Written comments regarding the design study may be submitted through June 19, 2015. Email to aipccomment@gmail.com or post to the Aquidneck Island Planning Commission, 437 Broadway, Newport, RI 02840.

All comments, verbal and written, should include your name and place of residence.

See you on Thursday!
