Routes

Tour de Streets has 3 routes for walkers, bikers, and families:

An urban route for bikers. This ride will last for about 90 minutes and be led by experienced ride marshals.

A shorter family-friendly route that will be led by an experienced family rider. This will last for about 1 hour.

A 3-mile walk that will highlight some of the best walking and biking assets in the area.

What to bring
  • Helmet (required by MA State law for children under 16, and required for all on this ride — make sure it fits snugly)
  • Water bottle filled with water
  • Sunscreen
  • Sunglasses
  • Camera
  • Bike lock
  • Snack (additional snacks will be provided at the start of the race)

Getting there

Transit: The campus is about a 10 minute walk from either the Science Park or Lechmere stops on the Green Line. You can plan your MBTA trip here.

Driving: Put 2 Education Circle, Cambridge, MA into your GPS. The parking lot at Lechmere Station has spots for $6/day. Parking may be limited so we encourage riding, walking or taking the T to Tour de Streets if possible!


Fundraising

Everyone (18+) who is riding or walking is required to raise $100. Children under age 18 ride or walk for free. You will be prompted to create a personal fundraising page when you register. Creating a team is a great way to invite family and friends to join the fun!

If you are signing up to only attend the BBQ/Party, you will still need to create a personal fundraising page when you register. You can use this account to fundraise, but it's not required.

BBQ

Bring your appetite for a post ride celebratory BBQ on the outdoor patio at Education First. We'll have live music and you'll be just steps away from a playground and skate park! The BBQ will take place 11:30-2pm.

If you are rider, walker, or donated $25 or more to Tour de Streets you get lunch and one free beer! Children 12 and under eat free. Additional alcoholic beverages will be available for cash purchase.

Entertainment

Enjoy live, local music on the patio while you enjoy your lunch and take in the sweeping views!

In addition to music, there is a playground, splash park, and skate park just steps from the event space.
