Bike Newport's Elliot's Ride for Everyone


Bike Newport’s Free Community Event for Biking and Walking on Newport’s Famous Ocean Loop … Without Cars!

Elliot’s Ride for Everyone is the family-favorite ride of the year! The free community event features safe, family-friendly fun for all… every age, every mobility, every kind of cyclist, hiker, roller, and stroller. Come enjoy the wind in your hair and smiles on everyone’s faces – experience the joys of biking and hiking along Newport’s captivating coastline – car-free!

At 8:45 am, the event begins with an official welcome in front of Rogers High School – where you’ll find parking, refreshment, and bathroom facilities.

From 9:00am to 12:00pm, Newport Police will close the route to cars – including the length of Hazard Road, through the Goose Neck Salt Marsh, and Ocean Avenue from Carroll Avenue (at the east end) to Harrison Avenue (at the west end). Participants may enter and exit the route on bicycle from any point. In addition to Rogers High School, participants may park at Brenton Point State Park. There will be a protected corridor for bicycles from the Brenton Point parking lot to the beginning of the Open Road at Ocean/Harrison.

Bring your family and friends, and join us as we experience this beautiful place worry-free.
