Grand Prize winner Hootie Fogg and Tom Kearns, Ten Speed Spokes owner and Grand Prize donor. HUGE thanks to Tom for the beautiful Specialized Crossroads.
WOW was that a great party!
Rack ‘em Up was a huge success – more than 200 bike lovers celebrated to the tunes of Pier Jump and Los Duderinos with the help of Common Fence Music in the fabulous venue of our uber host-with-the-most Midtown Oyster Bar. Awards were won, songs were sung, oysters were devoured, videos played and racing hearts pumped (for real!). We welcomed many new Bike Newport members, sold a slew of rad merchandise, and had a blast on RI Bike’s VeloSprints! In addition to all the fun we had, we raised about $4,500 – an amazing start to our campaign to purchase portable parking for 1,000 bikes.
Wow, what a time. We thank everyone for coming out to eat, dance, drink, and bid in support of BIKE RACKS. We love our cycling community!
