The 10th annual Tour de Montclair is coming up on May 20 and registration is now open!
Over the years, this event has ballooned from a small community bike ride drawing only 200 people into an all-out festival attracting more than 1,000 participants.
Cyclists of all abilities are invited to ride one of the tour’s three routes: a one-mile car-free loop within Brookdale Park, a medium on-road route (8 miles), and a more challenging “long route” around Montclair (12 miles). Walkers can enjoy the car-free park and continue on a 4-mile route via the Lenape Trail (a blazed trail that links many attractions and neighborhoods) and the Upper Montclair shopping district.
This year promises to be another memorable community celebration that will raise funds for Bike&Walk Montclair’s advocacy efforts, supporting safety and enjoyment of bicycling and walking.
“Bike & Walk Montclair understands the community’s desire for safe streets for biking and walking, and spearheads many initiatives in our neighborhood to make that a reality,” says BWM president Laura Torchio. “Additional support is needed so we can fund a variety of new projects, including a summer bike camp for kids, rider education, and a pilot Open Street event.”
