Saturday 12/14: Somerville Illuminations Bicycle Tour


On Saturday, December 14 is the Somerville Illuminations Bicycle Tour, a wintry night-time ride amongst warmly lit homes. The Somerville Bicycle Committee holds this event in conjunction with the Somerville Arts Council’s Illuminations Trolley Tour the same evening. Meet at 5:50 pm in front of the main entrance to Somerville High School, 81 Highland Ave. (next to City Hall). We’ll depart promptly at 6 pm, riding for about an hour.

Please wear warm clothes and light up your bike — the more lights, the merrier! Costumes are encouraged but not required. We suggest a $5 donation to support the Somerville Arts Council. After the ride, enjoy hot drinks, treats, and good cheer at City Hall.
