Tour de Streets

A sign that says "Tour de Streets This Way" with an arrow pointing left is taped up on a wooden fence.

Tour de Streets is back in person...

...and we can't wait to see you at the Charles River Speedway!

It has been 17 years since we first started our work advocating for better infrastructure to make the streets safer for everyone, especially pedestrians and people riding bicycles, and connecting partners to resources and opportunities. We are growing rapidly and have nearly doubled the size of our team over the last 6 months.

Tour de Streets remains our most important annual fundraising event, and this will be an opportunity to reconnect as we celebrate LivableStreets’ accomplishments and ensure we have the resources to fund our work in the coming years.

To meet our 2022 fundraising goals, we’re aiming to raise $60,000. Can you help us reach our goal?

This year, we hope to see you at the Charles River Speedway! Located at 525 Western Ave in Brighton, the event space includes a large indoor space called "Garage B" with massive glass doors that open onto an outdoor patio. Drinks will be provided by on-site sake & wine specialists The Koji Club, and there will be delicious food from other local vendors - stay tuned!

On September 10th, we'll be set up and ready for you to arrive starting at 10am for anyone participating in the walk or bike rides. After everyone has signed in, each group will depart and we will all spend time enjoying seeing and learning about the neighborhoods & greenways nearby!

The walk and rides will return to the venue around 12:30pm, at which point the party starts! If you are joining us just for the celebration, you are welcome to arrive at the Speedway starting at 12:15pm.

There will be activities for all ages, as well as music and team photos for anyone who wants to commemorate their fundraising efforts. Festivities will continue until around 2pm, when you are free to go enjoy the rest of your day!
