Under the guidance of experienced cyclists with spellbinding quadriceps, you'll gleefully glide atop a 21-speed hybrid all-terrain bicycle as you soak in stellar views of the City by the Sea. Tour itineraries are flexible enough to accommodate the abilities and desires of each group of riders, but tours often pass through the scenic Sachuest Point National Wildlife Preserve, Norman’s Bird Sanctuary, downtown Newport, and Bellevue Avenue's row of historic mansions without the crippling financial risk of landing on Park Place. The pace of pedaling is determined by each group, with complete roundabouts ranging between one and two hours in length and traversing anywhere from 5 to 20 miles of land. At the time of your tour, you may choose to upgrade to a two-hour journey for an additional $15 charge.

Blues legends James Montgomery, a harmonica virtuoso known for recording with Kid Rock and sitting in with Gregg Allman, and Duke Robillard, a guitarist recognized for his work with Bob Dylan and Tom Waits, join Kelly onstage for a group jam session applied liberally to huge slices of toast.
