For five years, Bike Newport has helped to move the City of Newport and the greater Newport area steadily along the path to improved bicycle friendliness. We do this in the best interest of the health and well-being of our thriving community of residents, visitors, workers and students. We believe that every person who wants to ride a bicycle should be able to, with confidence and security. A signature program of Bike Newport, our Community Bike Project helps deliver on our mission to get more people on bicycles – for transportation and recreation. We collect, restore and distribute second-hand bicycles throughout the community, along with basic bike safety and bike maintenance education. The bicycles are received from donation, abandonment, and recycling/rescue, and are restored by staff, volunteers and future owners through our “Earn-a-Bike” program. Many lives are transformed by dependable, affordable, healthy, and environmentally-sound transportation, and hundreds of reparable bicycles are kept out of the waste stream.
