Elliot’s Ride for Everyone- Elliot’s Ride for Everyone is an invitation to EVERYONE, of every age and every level of bicycle experience, to come out and ride and experience the joy of biking along the picturesque ocean coastline while celebrating the importance of safe road sharing. Elliot’s Ride for Everyone honors the life and passion of Dr Elliot Kaminitz – a much-loved community member who lost his life while riding on Memorial Blvd in 2012. Elliot wanted everyone to experience the joy of bicycling. The ride start will be based at Rogers High School where there is plenty of parking, refreshment, and bathroom facilities. Newport Police will guide people across the street to the start of the car-free route – which continues south the length of Hazard Road, through the Goose Neck Salt Marsh to Ocean Avenue. The closure to traffic will span Ocean Avenue from Carroll to Harrison.
