4th of July Bike Parade? Yes, Newport Has That

Cruise on down to Ellery Park, across from Bucci's where Thames and Farewell meet, at 9:30 a.m.

Thanks to the folks at Bike Newport, which is slowly but surely making Newport more bike friendlier every day, there's yet another reason to keep your feet on the pedals this Independence Day.

It's the annual Newport 4th of July Family Bike Parade!

Cruise on down to Ellery Park, across from Bucci's where Thames and Farewell meet, at 9:30 a.m. 

You'll then decorate your bike to make it presentable for the subsequent parade and at 10:10 a.m., you and the rest of the group, which will include Russell Daly's vintage bikes, will pedal on down to and around Washington Square for the two-wheeled procession of celebration for America, bikes and more. Or three-wheeled. Or four. Or one. 

It's free. It's fun. And now it's your chance to take part in a different sort of parade, one which extolls the virtues of biking and promotes bike-friendly cities and towns, which is Bike Newport's overarching mission.

After the parade, there's plenty to do including music, pie-eating (you did just burn off all those calories), Paul Revere's cannons and the reading of the Declaration of Independence from the steps of the Colony House.
