Description:

The Red Shed Bike Shop (RSBS) is a program of the Woonasquatucket River Watershed Council (WRWC). It was started to get people on bikes and keep bikes out of the river. The RSBS is located in Riverside Park along the Fred Lippitt Woonasquatucket River Greenway, a seven-mile path that runs from downtown Providence into Johnston. The seasonal shop offers low cost bike repairs, rentals and inexpensive refurbished bikes for sale. Shop income and donations of bikes help fund the summer Bike Camp program.

RSBS works with cyclists of all ages and skill levels, from those learning to ride for the first time to those with years of experience on two wheels. Red Shed gives local students, neighbors, and fellow Rhode Islanders the skills and information they need to be safe and confident cyclists so they can enjoy nature close to home. RSBS is committed to delivering programs that are accessible to all Rhode Islanders, regardless of income, education, or background.

2019 Bike Camp: Children learn to fix their bikes, gain safe riding skills, and go on group rides every weekday for a week. Plus, each child gets a new helmet and lock to keep! Campers will also CANOE on the river and learn about wildlife with fun, hands-on activities.
