In 2004, Larry Slotnick and I decided that Boston deserved better biking, walking, and public transit and took action by co-founding LivableStreets to create a force for change. I am proud of the many accomplishments LivableStreets has achieved over the past 15 years and the growth and vitality the organization continues to experience. Kudos to such a great leadership team!
Tour de Streets celebrates the life and spirit of Bob Zeeb along with other members of our Metro Boston community whose lives have been lost or dramatically altered by traffic crashes. An avid bicyclist, Bob died in 2009 as a result of a crash while training for a cross-country ride.
Together with the Zeeb family, LivableStreets has built Tour de Streets as a memorial to loved ones, encouraging reflection and action to further a vision for safer streets and more livable communities.
Since 2010, Tour de Streets has grown into one of LivableStreets' most popular events for avid and recreational cyclists, families with small children and everyone in between.
