Enjoy a city-wide sound-art installation and share your vision for the arts in Cambridge on our “Sound + Vision” bicycle tour

With the help of the Cambridge Arts Council, we’ve put together a tour of over 20 public art sites in Cambridge. We won’t just see art, we’ll hear art. As we ride from site to site, we’ll listen to the flowing, site-specific music of ROUND:Cambridge, commissioned by the arts council and created by Halsey Burgund. Each neighborhood has its own sound which smoothly transitions as you travel through the city.

ROUND:Cambridge also mixes-in participant’s voices. A smartphone app, available for both iOS and Android, enables you to record your reactions to the art. At selected public art stops, we’ll have the opportunity add our comments to the performance. The Arts Council will also be listening to our suggestions for the future use of a newly-created, full city block of open space in East Cambridge.

If your bike's not ready for the ride you can rent one for the day from Urban AdvenTours. They’re offering a special rate of $20 for the day of our ride. Call 617 670-0637 and tell them you’re riding with the Cambridge Bicycle Committee.

If you’re not ready for the ride, sign up for the free On-bike Training workshop at the Alewife T station bike cage. Bring your bike for the 2:00 PM session on Saturday, May 10 and learn the basics of riding, turning, and navigating in the city. RSVP Jennifer Lawrence by email to or phone 617-349-4671.

The 13-mile ride begins and ends at the main library, 449 Broadway. We’ll travel at a leisurely pace, escorted by Cambridge Police bicycle-patrol officers. Including time for stops, the ride will last about 2.5 hours. Like all our tours, this ride is free of charge.
