Tour de Newton is Newton’s very own family-friendly biking event, is back for 2021! The 9th annual Tour de Newton will take place on Sunday, September 19th starting at 9AM.

TDN 2021 will have five bike routes, four of which will be 12 – 14 mile rides starting at separate locations (Newton Centre, West Newton, Newtonville, and Waban)). The fifth route will be approximately 20 miles and depart from Newton Centre. Each bike route will travel to several other villages, experience fun surprises, see hidden Newton treasures and back roads, and lead to a rally at Newton City Hall with all the riders. As always, our rides are guided, family-friendly, with no rider left behind. This day 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.
REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED FOR ALL EVENTS!
