The fifth annual 4 Bridges Ride, sponsored by the Rhode Island Turnpike and Bridge Authority Foundation will be held on Sunday, September 17th 2017.

The 26 mile charity ride allows cyclists an opportunity to cross the Verrazzano, Pell, Sakonnet and Mt. Hope Bridges connecting the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations. All net proceeds from rider registration and sponsorships from this year’s 4 Bridges Ride will be donated to Save The Bay, in support of their mission to protect our vital waterways.

The event will start at 7 a.m. in North Kingstown, and finish on the campus of Roger Williams University in Bristol. Parking will be provided at the finish line of the event adjacent to Roger Williams University on Old Ferry Road starting at 5:00 a.m. on Sunday, September 17th. From there, shuttles will be provided to all participants and will run from 5:00 a.m. until 6:15 a.m. More information and a detailed weekend schedule is available at

The 4 Bridges Ride is produced by Gray Matter Marketing, an award-winning event company with a portfolio including the Amica Newport Marathon, Ocean Road 10k, Newport 10 Miler, and the Citizens Bank Pell Bridge Run.
