School may be back in session, and at the Somerville Moped-Scooter Rally & Concourse, we’re celebrating the 3R’s—riding, racing and reducing your carbon footprint.

The Somerville Arts Councils and moped maestro Todd Sargent take a cue from this year’s ArtBeat and present an event highlighting alternative transport and the coolest urban rides. The evening will feature a rally of two-wheelers (up to 250cc), all vying to become king of the road. Crowds will be entertained by short films on shootering and clips from Quadrophenia, the film that put mod mopeds on the map. The Sharp Darts, The Big Disapointments, The Broken River Prophets (www.myspace.com/thebrokenriverprophets), and The December Sound (www.myspace.com/thedecembersound) will perform at the rally. So if you’ve got your own set of wheels, come out to join the mania. Bikers and non-bikers alike are welcome to ride or just enjoy the spectacle. There may even be a post rally cruise around town with the KHZ moped crew.
