Run Pell Bridge for Bike Newport
October 22 @ 7:00 am - 12:00 pm
Run the Pell Bridge Run on October 22 for Bike Newport. Our community-based biking programs advance bicycle ownership and bicycle skills, both contributing to the improved confidence that gets more people on bikes. We also actively advocate for improved bike infrastructure and improved connectivity citywide – to school, work, recreation and other destinations. We nurture young bike talents and we’re lucky to work with many amazing young people.
“I love to ride my bike with Bike Newport with my friend Memphis. We make jokes while we’re riding. We rode to First Beach and to Bragga Park and to Goat Island. We see so much more of Newport than before. When we ride I feel really free. I tell people at school, if you don’t have anything to do at home, come ride bikes! I’d like to get more girls to ride. Kids shouldn’t be on their phones all the time. I used to be on my phone a lot but now I’d rather go outside. I use my phone just to take pictures, like at the beach.” Izzy Perez, age 12, Thompson MS grade 6.
With your help we can grow Bike Newport’s youth programs and reach even further into our community.
