RITBA announces race beneficiaries

The Aquidneck Island Planning Commission, responsible for bringing the Aquidneck Island Bikeway one step closer to reality, will be the beneficiary of all net proceeds from the Four Bridges Bike Ride.

On Sept. 15, cyclists can pedal across the four bridges owned by the Rhode Island Turnpike and Bridge Authority – the Jamestown, Newport, Sakonnet and Mount Hope spans – in a 26-mile ride. The planned Aquidneck Island Bikeway will be an 18-mile bike trail connecting Newport, Middletown and Portsmouth from the Sakonnet River Bridge along the west side of the island to the Newport beaches.

The ride will begin in North Kingstown and end in Bristol. To register, visit 4BridgesRide.com.
