Bike Newton, a 501c3 organization, aims to promote bicycling as a viable method of transportation in Newton, Massachusetts. Bicycling should be safe and convenient for all.

Imagine a Newton where we could safely bike to work, to errands, and to the T, and kids could safely bike to school and after-school activities. Imagine many more people biking just for fun!
