The mayors and the rest of the assembled bicyclists went on the Tour d’ Art (PDF flyer), a " bicycle tour of the public art in our communities." See the actual route on the Tour d’ Art / Ride with the Mayors live map on the ArtOrg web site. Councilor Erica Zweifel emailed me the other two photos above.

Saturday’s Tour d’ Art bike tour (part of ArtSwirl) begins with a dedication ceremony for the Peggy Prowe Pedestrian Bridge, part of the Mill Towns Trail. There’s now a bronze Rotary International plaque on the bridge, as the Northfield Rotary Club has raised tens of thousands of dollars for the bridge, primarily via its annual Jesse James Bike Tour. See the poster (PDF) for more details.
