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!

I found Susie’s bike tour through google search when I was looking for other bike tours in Boston. The location was not hard to find coming off the Orange line though we had to make a toilet stop at Whole Foods at the start of our tour. Our bodies weren’t use to sitting for such long periods of time in the train?? Susie was awesome and accommodating! She had helmets, water bottles, and even gloves to ensure our hands were warm during the ride. The tour was just my boyfriend and I. I haven’t ridden a bike an so long and Susie took the time to explain every detail about Sprite (e-bike’s name :) ) and how the e-bike functioned. We absolutely enjoyed every bit of it and being able to stop here and there to look at different things that peaked our interests was plus. Susie was very knowledgeable and we loved that were were able to stop to take pictures and eat lobster rolls and clam chowder at Luke’s Lobster! Highlight of the tour for Adrian and I was being able to pause and take it all in when we were at the park. We got a chance to see a heron and scenery was absolutely amazing. We love the foliage in the trees. We are from Texas, the leaves were still green when we left and it surely doesn’t look like anything we saw that day in the park in Boston. Lol I’m really glad we didn’t didn’t have a large group and it was just the three of us including Susie! We would definitely recommend booking a bike tour with Susie if you’re in Boston! Pros: More personal and at your our pace. Lovely tour guide! Cons: I totally want to shell out moola to get and e-bike now!!!! :)

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.

Suzie was a bundle of energy and so knowledgeable about Boston! Loved her anecdotes and am amazed at her energy! She was very particular about keeping the group together, stops she picked along the ride had great views to city. Super energetic and knowledgeable. She also customized the itinerary for us and adjusted to the start time based on our needs. Highly recommend it for a more personalized experience.
