The Red Shed is the home of the WRWC Bike Education Programs. The goal of the Red Shed is to grow more Woony River Heroes – making biking accessible to kids and families in neighborhoods along the Woony River Greenway and beyond. We work with cyclists of all ages and skill levels, from first time riders, to those with years of experience. Red Shed gives our students, neighbors, and fellow Rhode Islanders, the skills and information they need to be safe and confident cyclists so that they can enjoy nature close to home. These programs are accessible to all Rhode Islanders, regardless of income, education, or background. Learn about our various programs for youth and adults. Interested in bringing our programs to your school, business, or community group? Contact us to make it happen. The Red Shed is located at Riverside Park in Olneyville, right next to the Woonasquatucket River Greenway. Wave to us when you ride by on the bike path!

Red Shed Bike Camp
At Red Shed Bike Camp, kids ages 8-13 spend a fun-filled week in the summer exploring the watershed on two wheels! Through the week, campers enjoy daily bike rides. They also learn safe riding skills, basic bike maintenance, and watershed stewardship. After a bike-filled week at camp, our campers leave with the freedom and independence of riding a bike safely and confidently, a new way to enjoy the natural beauty along the Greenway, and a sense of pride from learning new skills. The Red Shed offers special scholarships to qualified campers, providing access for all no matter their income.
Virtual Learning Resources
In partnership with the Rhode Island Department of Transportation our Red Shed program has created three bicycle safety videos to continue to provide important bicycle safety lessons from a distance. These videos teach how to properly fit a helmet, how to check your bike to make sure it’s safe to ride, proper hand signals and rules of the road. Using these videos we have created a course designed for 5th graders that we are sharing with schools in our watershed and around the state. Our goal is to offer this program in as many schools as possible through the remainder of the school year with the hope that these videos can be an asset to teachers looking for diverse educational materials to offer virtually or in person. If you are a teacher or parent who would like to learn more about this program and how to bring it to your school please contact Donny Green at firstname.lastname@example.org
