Registration open for Tour de Newton; event date will be June 17, 9:00 a.m.

Join the fun at the 6th annual Tour de Newton! Register at by May 24 and pay 2015 rates of $5.00 child, $10.00 adult, under 3 FREE. 

This year there will be a new format. Tour de Newton Magical Mystery Tour will have 4 start locations (Newton Centre, West Newton, Newtonville, and Waban), a contra tour, and a petite tour. Each bike route will travel to several other villages, experience fun surprises, see hidden Newton treasures and back roads, and then lead to an 11:00 a.m. rally at Newton City Hall with all the riders, and birthday wishes for Bike Newton, which turns 10 years old this year. Return when you wish or with a ride leader to your start location to finish by 12:30 p.m. As always, the rides are guided and family- friendly, with no rider left behind.

While the tour is in action, City Hall will be busy with a new event for cyclists who aren’t yet road ready entitled #BikeHappyKids. This event will include leveled ride areas aimed at teaching skills, building confidence, and having fun. There will be inclusive elements such as balance bikes and (hopefully) adaptive bikes. There will also be demonstrations of different styles of bikes, useful accessories, and information on biking gear that makes biking safer and easier.

Look forward to seeing you June 17,  9:00 a.m. REGISTRATION REQUIRED. Sign up now at
