Somerville, NJ 08876
The Tour of Somerville is a community event, free for spectators, that transcends the sport of cycling. It is not only a bike race, but a festival, a carnival, and a giant family reunion all in one. The event honors American heroes as part of this Memorial Day tribute.
Even as the Tour has grown, it has maintained its homegrown, hometown image. The day’s highlights are both the cycling and the opportunity to show community pride in the town of Somerville. Many organizations work together to make the event a success.
Tens of thousands of people from all over the nation converge on the tree-lined streets of Somerville to cheer the cyclists as they speed up to 40 mph past Victorian homes and main street storefronts in the borough’s downtown district.
