Newton has put together a bicycle ride through all 13 villages in the city
during the Tour de Newton.
The 20-mile ride will be held on Oct. 6. The ride is a loop, and groups will leave simultaneously from each of the 13 villages.
Trained leaders will lead each group, and a “sweeper” will bring up the rear to make sure no rider is left behind, according to the announcement on the Bike Newton website.
“We welcome you even if riding this far will be a challenge,” the announcement reads.
The group will stop briefly in each village, where you can meet village greeters – aldermen, local residents, members of the Newton bike community and local businesspeople. Also, collect buttons at each village.
Riders must wear a helmet, have a bike in good working order, be ready to ride 20 miles in on roads in traffic and those under 14 must be accompanied by an adult.
