The Tour of Somerville was started in 1940 by a local bike owner and racer named  Fred “Pop” Kugler. 

It is the oldest bicyle race in the United States and is considered “the Kentucky Derby of Cycling.”

This year I was privileged to have the day off from work and decided to enjoy the day in Somerville.  It’s been many years since I’ve been here for the race.

The following photos are a collage of memories.
