After the very successful 2012 Tour of the Fireflies, we are now preparing for the much-awaited and highly-anticipated 15th TOUR OF THE FIREFLIES - Let's Just Ride Together, happening on November 24, 2013!
We have just concluded the 15th Tour of the Fireflies - Let's Just Ride Together, and we are very excited to announce the Firefly Brigade's call to action - ride your bike to work every Wednesday! If you need someone to guide you or find the best route, call us and we will find a Firefly who can guide you and help you find the best route to your place of work. If you are lucky, we can even get you a biking buddy who can not only teach you the right bike commuting techniques but also accompany you on your way to work!

The Tour of the Fireflies will always be a success because of our valiant marshals. They are dedicated bikers who make sure that all Tour participants, regardless of their skill levels, age or gender, are safe from start to finish.
