Rhode Island Turnpike & Bridge Authority Foundation

The Rhode Island Turnpike and Bridge Authority was created in 1954 by the Rhode Island General Assembly as a body corporate and politic, with powers to construct, acquire, maintain and operate bridge projects as defined by law.

The Authority was responsible for construction of the Claiborne Pell Bridge (formerly the Newport Bridge) which was opened for traffic on June 28, 1969, and has been responsible for the operation and maintenance of the Mount Hope Bridge between Bristol and Portsmouth, Rhode Island, and the Claiborne Pell Bridge between Newport and Jamestown, Rhode Island, since 1964 and 1969, respectively.



The Rhode Island Turnpike and Bridge Authority is pleased to offer cycling enthusiasts a one of a kind course while raising money for our not-for profit partner.

In recognition of their efforts to protect and improve Narragansett Bay, all net proceeds from rider registration and sponsorships from this year's 4 Bridges Ride will be donated to Save The Bay.



You can raise money for our Official Charity Partner, Save The Bay, or for any cause you care about deeply. There are no minimums and no requirements and all of the money you raise rolls up into the total amount raised for the 4 Bridges Ride.

So if you are participating in the race or not, raise money for a cause you're passionate about and ask your friends and family to sponsor you at this unique event!
