19th Annual Tour de Somerville

The Somerville Bicycle Committee invites you to ride our 19th Annual Tour de Somerville. This year's theme is "Arts in the 'Ville".

We'll meet at 10 am on Saturday, October 15 in Seven Hills Park, behind the Holland Street MBTA entrance in Davis Square. We will depart promptly at 10:15.

The tour will ride by places throughout Somerville where art is produced, exhibited, or performed. We'll get off our bikes to visit the new ...Artisan's Asylum (home base to Somerville's SCUL art-bike gang), the new Mudflat, and Fringe at Olive Square. We'll also briefly stop by several artists' studio buildings where Open Studios will occur later this fall: Brickbottom, Joy Street, Vernon Street, and Washington Street Art Center.

More information will be available at

A tentative route map, showing all* of the Somerville art-related places we're aware of, is at

If there is steady rain on Saturday, we'll postpone the ride to Sunday, October 16, same starting place and time.

(* We think that our map lists every Somerville art-related place that isn't a private residence. If we've overlooked something important, please reply to and let us know what we've left out.)
