Get the Whole Family Biking

What better way to celebrate dads and summer than a sweet morning bike ride along Newport’s Ocean Drive? With a range of riding and walking options, there's something for everyone in the family. Last year, more than 200 cyclists of all ages met at Fort Adams to participate in the inaugural Father’s Day Ride. This year, the tradition continues with 6, 10 and 25-mile route options, a 2-mile Bay Walk, a Kids’ “Tour de Fort" inside the walls of Fort Adams. The Kids’ Tour de Fort will include skills training and loop riding.

For online registration and event information, visit fathersdayride.org. Participants can check in on Saturday, June 14 at Bike Newport, 437 Broadway, or starting at 7 a.m. at Fort Adams on June 15. At 7:30 a.m., instructors from Thames Street Yoga will lead a yoga stretch. The ride will start promptly at 8 a.m. And activities will continue until 12 noon.
