“The Magical Mystery Tour Continues”

We had so much fun last year with the mysteries along the way and the rally at city hall.  Tour de Newton 2019 will have routes starting in 4 villages – Newton Centre, West Newton, Newtonville and Waban + City Hall. All routes will rendezvous at Newton City Hall on Commonwealth Ave to celebrate.  In addition, there will be a Petite Tour and Contra Tour leaving from City Hall. All routes will begin at 9AM and travel to several other villages, experience fun surprises, see hidden Newton treasures and then lead to an 11AM rally at Newton City Hall with all the riders.   Return with ride leader to your start location to finish by 12:30PM.  This year’s celebration, we are working on live musical entertainment and some bike equipment demos as well.   Note:  Landry’s Bicycles will be doing a free bike safety check for any rider from 9-11 a.m.!
