Plan Ahead for Father’s Day this year. On Sunday, June 17 starting at 9 am, join Bike Newton for a Newton tradition with a new twist. Registration is open for the Annual Tour de Newton 2018 Magical Mystery Tour + Bike Happy Kids! Early bird pricing expires May 24 so register now HERE.
Bike Newton is excited to announce a new format this year. #TDN #MagicalMysteryTour will have four start locations (Newton Centre, West Newton, Newtonville and Waban), plus a ‘contra tour’ and a ‘petite tour’. Each bike route will travel to several villages, experience fun surprises, see hidden Newton treasures and back roads, and lead to an 11am rally at Newton City Hall. Birthday wishes will be given to Bike Newton that turns 10 years old this year. Return when you wish or with a ride leader to your start location to finish by 12:30pm (at the latest). Rides are guided, family friendly, no rider left behind.
While the tour is in action, City Hall will be busy with a new event for cyclists who are not yet road ready, #BikeHappyKids. This event will include leveled ride areas aimed at teaching skills, building confidence and having fun. Kids with balance bikes and adaptive bikes are invited to be there too. Bike Newton will also demonstrate different styles of bikes, useful accessories and information on biking gear that makes biking safer and easier.
PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED FOR Tour de Newton and Bike Happy Kids!
This is an opportunity to come together as a community, demonstrate how bike-able Newton is, show people that they have choices when it comes to transportation around the city and to have fun.
