Longest Day Ride - June 23rd 2016

Might as well get the word out - June 22nd, 2017 will be the date of this year's Longest Day Ride.
Ten Speed Spoke's Longest Day Ride is our yearly event held to celebrate the start of summer and all things cycling. It features 4 different length arrowed courses. Ride starts and ends at the shop, sign in starts at 5pm and ride leaves at 6pm.  Everything is free!  Shirts and helmets are required.
All skill levels and ages of cyclists are invited.  Registration is Now Open!

I’m proud to say, 2017 marks the 20th year anniversary of The Longest Day Ride!  

I started this ride because cyclists are some of the most generous people I know when it comes to raising awareness for great causes and charities - riding 100’s of miles, spending time training and fundraising - all without asking for anything in return. It was born from the desire to have a ride for no other reason than “just because” we all love riding our bikes.

The ride started with about 6 people, and over the years has grown exponentially - at times reaching up to 400 riders.  The city of Newport now recognizes The Longest Day Ride as an “event”.  As an event, it requires special yearly event permits, other involved paperwork/town considerations, a police escort for the parade through downtown and Ocean Drive, not to mention a couple hundred tee-shirts, snacks, over 60 pizzas, and the all important refreshing malty beverages.

This ride has grown more than I ever could have dreamed, and it has always been my intention to keep the ride free, meaning no registration fee, because making money is not what this ride is about. I’ve thought long and hard about this, and would like to ask riders for a voluntary contribution this year to help defray the cost of this ever-growing event. Making a contribution will be completely up to you and what you feel is appropriate, and every penny will go towards the success of this year’s ride. And if you didn't want to do it here you can always do it the day of the ride.

Bringing people of shared interest together for one long summer night is one of the highlights of my year. Showing off our beautiful island, while bringing attention to the local community of the cyclist presence on the road, is something I hope to continue for many years into the future.

Thank you so much for registering and for considering helping out this year - I look forward to seeing you all again on June 22nd!
