This Sunday’s Tour de Newton is officially a sell-out. The Tour is a 20 mile, 13 village, free fun bike ride. It will start simultaneously in all 13 villages at 9:30 on Sunday morning. As the 13 groups ride around the city, they’ll stop in each village, collect a badge and hear a bit about the village.
When planning the event, we were expecting 150-200 riders but hoping for maybe 300. Registration was just closed down earlier this morning with a total of 411 riders registered. We’re particularly happy that more than a third of the registered riders are kids. It’s not just “the bike people” who’ll be riding, it’s everyone.
So if you’re out and about on Sunday morning, stop by your village center and welcome and cheer on the visitors from around the city. The groups from other villages will be arriving every 10-15 minutes from 9:30 – 1 PM.
