Tour de Montclair '09

Bike “Complete Streets” in the Tour de Montclair


New start location!  Roads closed to cars for short route!  Bike Montclair’s seventh annual Tour de Montclair will be held on Sunday, May 17, 2009 and will start and end at Montclair’s Edgemont Park.  The ’09 tour will have a festival atmosphere with food, give-aways, and entertainment.  As in years past, the goal is to bring together families, cycling enthusiasts, and casual riders on a scenic, non-competitive bike tour throughout Montclair.  New this year is a shorter carless loop for young and novice riders around Edgemont and Anderson Parks.  Experienced cyclists taking the “long route” will explore Montclair on shared roadways throughout town.

This year’s Tour theme is “Complete Streets”.  Streets are “complete” when they are designed to enable safe access for all users – so that bicyclists, pedestrians, motorists, and transit users of all ages can comfortably travel on them.  Bike Montclair endorses the Township’s efforts to “complete the streets” by planning and designing our roadways to welcome all citizens.

The Tour begins at 1:00 p.m. at Edgemont Park, winds throughout Montclair’s blossoming neighborhoods, and ends back at the park with music and entertainment.  Young and novice riders are encouraged to take the shorter loop which will be closed to cars.   Volunteer Ride Captains will help keep riders moving along, and Montclair Police officers and crossing guards will be stationed at many intersections.  The rain date will be Sunday, May 31, 2009.

All participants must wear helmets.  Anyone younger than 14 years old must be accompanied by an adult, and teens age 14–17 must have a signed permission slip, which will be available on-site or

Registration starts at NOON on Sunday May, 17, 2009 at Edgemont Park, or pre-register online at  Cost is $12 for individuals, $30 for families up to 5 (additional people will be charged as individuals).  All participants will receive a collectible Bike Montclair Tour '09 T-shirt and Route Map, and give-aways from our sponsors!

As part of “May in Montclair”, this colorful springtime ride is presented by cycling advocacy group Bike Montclair in cooperation with the Township of Montclair and the Montclair YMCA.  The Tour de Montclair promotes cycling in our community for recreation, transportation, and sport, and supports Bike Montclair’s work to help make Montclair safer and more appealing for bicyclists and pedestrians.
