Það sem verður gert

See Boston from an electric bike ("ebike") in a small group setting! I provide a quality ebike, bike helmet, and water. All bikes have hand brakes and gears, so for safety, all riders MUST be comfortable using both. All riders should wear a helmet for safety. We'll adjust and test the bikes for 15-20 minutes, and then we will set out on our ride. Most of our ride is on paved cycle routes with no cars, some of it in the Emerald Necklace Park designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and on the Esplanade near the Charles River. We will cycle along both sides of the river, under the Zakim Bridge to Boston Harbor. We will stop for lunch and ride back through Cambridge and Brookline to Jamaica Plain. There are a few places where we walk the bikes for 2-3 blocks, so guests need to be able to walk a bit. The tour lasts about 5 hours, depending on how many stops we make and how long we spend at lunch. This tour will allow you to try an electric bike in a low-stress cycling environment. I hope to see you with the famous "e-bike grin" as you glide along! I can accommodate anyone 16 and over and taller than about 4'8". I can often accommodate different dates and times. New England weather is unpredictable so if the weather conditions are not safe for cycling, I will cancel the tour and you'll receive a full refund.

I am an experienced cyclist and Airbnb superhost. I recently retired from university teaching in global public health. I've cycled long distances e.g. from Bordeaux to Barcelona and across Britain several times. My bike "stable" now includes 12 bikes! I discovered electric bikes ("ebikes") a few years ago and never looked back. Boston has been my home for 23 years and I love to show guests my favorite places and views, and our amazing (and growing) network of parks and bike paths. I want to expose more people to ebikes - not only are they fun and good for you, but I think they are the future of affordable green urban transportation!

Staðsetning

We'll meet in Jamaica Plain (a neighborhood of Boston) where you'll find your bike. Then we will head down the bike path along the "Emerald Necklace", to Fenway Park and Kenmore Square. We'll ride along the Charles River to Boston Harbor, then cross back over to Cambridge for great views! Then we'll ride back over the river and back to "JP". We will not be cycling in old downtown Boston - see our friends at Urban Adventours for that route!

We had a wonderful day with Susie. She has taken the time to figure a great Riding route. The E bikes made the ride wonderful. We always felt safe. Susie is an interesting lady herself. We highly recommend this tour especially on one of your first days to Boston as it will help you navigate better for the rest of your trip. Try the chocolate chip cookies on your lunch break.

Biking with Susie was a really fun experience. She was a great leader and offered a number of stops to see historical sites and she shared tidbits that enhanced the trip a lot. While most of the trip was on paved paths, there were some congested traffic areas. But Susie navigated the group beautifully. We stopped for lunch at “FLOUR“ café and that was fantastic eating. The small number of people on Susie’s tour made some personalization possible. One of our members was running in the Boston marathon and she went out of the way to show him certain streets, the finish line, etc. Don’t hesitate to take this tour!

What a great way to see the Boston area. No need to be in great bicycle shape. These electric bikes help the whole ride.

Very fun adventure. Susie knows Boston and her bikes. I lived in Boston for four years. Yet Susie’s tour taught me a lot about the city.
