NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) — Hundreds of music fans traveled to this year's Newport Folk festival by bicycle.

Bike Newport, which provided bicycle parking at the weekend event, says it parked about 1,000 bikes at the festival on Saturday.

That's about one-tenth of the crowd.

Other fans utilized water shuttles to get to the event, located at Fort Adams State Park, to avoid the long lines of traffic.
