Greetings, Cyclists and Hikers,

Over the past 23 years Newport Public Library’s annual bicycle tour has been a popular opportunity for recreation, food, and much needed support for our library, a great community resource. We are pleased to announce that we will have an in-person-on-the-road bike tour again on Sept. 24, 2022, starting and ending at Little Buffalo State Park. As always, if you bring in $100 or more in sponsorships, you ride FREE.

We provide water and Gatorade at rest stops, water and lemonade/iced tea at lunch. Please bring a bottle to refill as you wish. Most of you, if not all, carry your refillable bottles with you anyway when you ride.

You have the choice of riding our 6K, 25K, 50K, or 100K course, OR hiking the many trails at Little Buffalo State Park.

We have to order t-shirts on Sept. 5. Many of you will pre-register by mail or online at https://bike4books2022.itemorder.com/shop/home/by that cutoff date, Sept. 5, 2022. These pre-registered people will get a free t-shirt. We will once again have t-shirts from previous rides for sale for $5 per shirt, available at the event. You must pick up your t-shirt either at the ride or after the ride at Newport Public Library. We cannot mail t-shirts to riders.

We have to put in the lunch order on Sept. 12. If you register before Sept. 12, you will definitely get lunch.  We will order extra lunches, but if too many people wait to register until the day of the ride there may not be lunches available for late registrants. There will be lots of food at the rest stops, as usual, and whoopie pies at the rest stops again this year, but we want you to know about this in advance so you can plan accordingly.
