About this event

Please join us for our 2023 Full Moon Rides, with all the dates listed below! Bike Newport is grateful to AARP Rhode Island for sponsoring this enjoyable monthly group ride, and we look forward to riding with you. We'll gather at Equality Park in downtown Newport, and once we get to King's Park our coastal route will bring us past scenic harbor, bay, and ocean views - lit first by the setting sun, and then by the rising moon.

Registration will be available each month after the prior ride completes. Tickets for the August 1st ride will become avaliable after 10:00pm on July 3rd. Please remember to return to this site to register if you wish to return for additional rides, and keep an eye on our social media @bikenewportri for related announcements! The ride is free. You'll see a 'Donate' option during checkout, and we are grateful for all who wish to support Bike Newport's education and advocacy initiatives.

We'll ride 15 miles on Newport’s scenic roads and coastline by the light of the moon – from downtown Newport to Fort Adams, around the beautiful Ocean Loop, and along the mansions of Bellevue Avenue. Please note: This ride is for riders aged 18 and above.

The August 1st ride gathers at 7:00pm, ride starts at 7:30, with sunset at 8:02 and moonrise at 8:34.

The August 30th ride gathers 6:15pm, ride starts at 6:45, with sunset at 7:21, and moonrise at 7:34.
