THE TOUR OF SOMERVILLE CANCELED DUE TO TROPICAL STORM
In respect for the many families and individuals negatively impacted by the flooding resulting
from Tropical Storm Ida, the 2021 Tour of Somerville will be canceled.
As families try to recover from the devastating floods and evacuations throughout Somerville and neighboring
communities, it was determined that the races were not appropriate at this time and that the energy that would
have gone into running the event be directed to helping neighbors in need.
“We have seen how the flooding has affected hundreds of families and in good conscience, we are not
comfortable staging a bike race at this time,” commented Race Director Mike Malekoff.
Added Mayor Dennis Sullivan, “Somerville is experiencing ongoing evacuations and beginning a massive clean-up.
As important as the Tour of Somerville is to our community, we have to direct all resources elsewhere.”
Added Malekoff, “We will be back on Memorial Day, 2022!”
