A ‘Historic Day’ in Newport
A couple months ago, we welcomed Newport, R.I., into the ranks of Bicycle Friendly Communities.
We were especially happy here at the League to see Newport make strides because it is the birthplace of our more than 130-year-old organization.
The City of Newport held a ceremony to celebrate its new Bronze-level BFC status last month, with remarks from the city’s mayor; member of the police department; Bari George, executive director of Bike Newport; and John Siemiatkoski, a member of the League’s board.
Bike Newport put together a short video to commemorate this celebration and journey — it’s an inspiration! Watch it below, and be sure to share it with your networks to help inspire others in your communities to become bike friendly.
