The rain has stopped and the Tour de Montclair is a go, so you know where I'll be this afternoon! If you haven't registered online, not to worry – you can register on site in Edgemont Park, on Valley Road in Montclair (map). The Tour theme, "Complete Streets," refers to streets designed for safe use by pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists, and public transit riders.
Registration starts: 12:00
Tour starts: 1:00 p.m.
Fee: $12 for individuals, $30 for families; the fee includes the Tour t-shirt.
Helmets for all riders and permission slips for younger riders are required.
There's a shorter, car-free route for younger and/or novice riders and a longer, challenging route for strong riders. After the tour, there's live music and a demonstration of stunt riding.
(It's a little tricky to do any knitting on a bike tour, so for obligatory knitting content, I have my sprocket socks from last year. Although I generally don't much like anklets, lately I've been feeling a need for a lot more cycling socks.)
Hope to see you there!
