Tour de Newton to be Rescheduled
We are hoping to move the ride to a weekend in the late summer/early fall, hopefully Labor Day Weekend. We will need to verify with the city and others.
Once we have a new date, we will be back in touch. We will be asking riders will need to RECONFIRM their registration if they want to ride on the rescheduled date. This way we will be able to offer open spots to others who want to ride and allow those who can’t make the date to register for free next year. Please stay tuned for additional information
The Third Annual Tour de Newton: Sunday, June 21, 2015
The annual Tour de Newton is a great event for kids, adults, and casual bicyclists. The ride starts simultaneously in all 13 villages. You’ll be riding with your village neighbors and have a trained leader/sweep to guide you. The 20 mile, 13 village fun ride stops at each of Newton’s villages, where you’ll be welcomed with refreshments, a village badge, and an overview of the village by the locals. Ride the whole 20 mile loop, or just a few villages, whichever you like. It’s a great fun way to see and learn about the whole city.
For 2015 we’ve added two new routes! For less experienced riders, we have the Petite Tour, a 5 mile Tour starting and ending near Mason-Rice School. For more experienced riders who want to move a little faster, we have the Contra Tour, starting and ending in Newton Centre, and going in the opposite direction from the other 14 tours. All ride start times are 9:30 sharp. Please arrive by 9:00am to check in!
If you are registering more than two people in a family, you will save money by registering as a family. Please register ALL participants. (e.g., infants must be registered, even if riding in a child seat, for liability reasons.) When you register as a family, the next page will ask for a “team” name; just use your last name to make it easy for ride leaders at check-in. You will also need to fill out a full registration for each participant.
There is no charge for children under 3. Children 3-12 pay the child rate.
All participants must also “sign” a waiver electronically; a parent or guardian must initial for anyone under 18. (We apologize in advance for the length of this process, especially for families.)
Don’t forget to choose a shirt size!
If you are a ride leader or sweep, do not click the ordinary registration link. You will register separately.
