  2. The 4 Bridges Ride is coming up on September 15th, 2019 in Rhode Island. (www.4bridgesride.com). 100% of the event proceeds are donated to Save the Bay. Registration is open and the ride is capped at 950 bikes — it sells out every year! It’s a point to point race with shuttles from the finish to the start, and then a ride back to your car. The ride is 26 miles and covers all four bridges connecting Aquidneck and Conanicut Island to the mainland — the Jamestown Verrazzano Bridge (not usually open to cyclists), the Claiborne Pell Bridge (not usually open to cyclists), the Sakonnet River Bridge and the Mt. Hope Bridge.
