The 73-year old Tour of Somerville which began in 1940 has taken place every Memorial Day since World War II and the men’s competition, the Kugler-Anderson Memorial, remembers the first winners who lost their lives during the war.

Thousands of people turn out to cheer on the more than 200 top cyclists in the nation and beyond.  It’s a day filled with cycling, festivities, music, and camaraderie.

Maggie Glynn talks with Ron Czajkowski who’s been involved with the Tour of Somerville for over 40-years about the day’s events, the community effort, the history, and the dedication and drive of the founder Fred “Pop” Kugler.
