The Tour of Somerville Cycling Series is an exciting cycling event, attracting over 600 professional and amateur cyclists, including our nation's top cyclists. The professional competitors in Monday’s feature race average speeds up to 40 mph in an exciting 50-mile race.
But this event is more than just thrilling races; it's a community event. We honor American heroes as part of this special Memorial Day tribute. Proceeds from the event benefit Jack’s Kids, a Somerville Elks initiative that provides financial assistance to the families of children with cancer. The event is entirely run by volunteers, bringing people from all walks of life together for one purpose.
