Wat je gaat doen

Try a fun and safe outdoor experience! See Boston from a socially distanced electric bike ("ebike"). I will provide a quality e-bike, a spiffy bike helmet, and a disposable mask. All bikes have both hand brakes and gears, so for safety, all riders MUST be competent using both. All riders must wear a helmet and a mask (Boston regulations...). We'll adjust and test the bikes for a few minutes, and then we will set out. Much of our tour will be on paved cycle routes with no cars, some of it in the Emerald Necklace Park designed by Frederick Law Olmstead. We will cycle along both sides of the Charles River, and pass by Boston University and arriving at Boston Harbor. We will stop for a takeout picnic lunch and ride back through 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 4 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 taller than about 4'10". I can sometimes accommodate different dates and times. New England weather is unpredictable so I will cancel the tour if the weather conditions are not safe. You'll receive a full refund.

I am an Airbnb superhost and experienced cyclist. I've cycled long distances e.g. from Bordeaux to Barcelona and across Britain several times, and I'm a devoted cycle commuter (and retired public health academic). I have 12 bikes! I discovered electric bikes ("e-bikes") a few years ago and never looked back. I've lived in Boston for 20 years and I love to show guests my favorite places and views, and our amazing network of bike paths. Each guest will receive a route map of our ride. I want to expose more people to e-bikes - not only are they fun, but I think they are the future of green urban transportation!

Waar je naartoe gaat

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 very much enjoyed our ride with Susie. The bikes were well maintained and super fun to ride. Susie took us all over the place and we saw so much of the city. It really is cool to see the sights from a bike. I am not a biker so I was a bit nervous but it was easy and very fun. I highly recommend biking with Susie.

My bike ride with Susie was all that I hoped, and then some. This was my first visit to Boston, and it was a short one, I wanted to see as much as possible, and thought a bike ride would offer a great perspective. Riding e-bike made it possible to bike almost 18 miles, without getting overly tired. It felt as if I got to see so much of Boston while getting a good workout and not feeling exhausted when we were done. Susie had everything ready before I got to her. The bike was cleaned and disinfected, the helmet was ready for me, and a bottle of water was provided, a map of Boston to follow our ride. She was concerned I would be cold and offered a jacket. I felt very cared for. Susie went over the suggested route before we headed out, but after asking what it was that I wanted to see, she modified so we can go see the spots I was interested in. On the way I have learned so much about Boston and its history. She has a wealth of information, and answered all of my questions. Boston is very friendly to cyclists, and with Susie guiding the way, biking was very easy. I am so glad I got to have this experience.

This was our first time riding street bikes in a very long time and Susie made the whole experience phenomenal! She went at our pace and is an excellent guide of the area. Also an excellent opportunity to learn and experience an e-bikes. I couldn't believe how much easier 15 miles went by. Also the little bakery we stopped at was superb. Thank you Susie!

Susie was a great guide! She had an array of bikes to choose from and stopped whenever we wanted to. She even tailored the tour specifically to us, adding different sights and removing others based on our interests. The cafe she took us to for lunch was delicious and we had a great conversation. Highly recommend for a scenic tour of the city without all the effort of a regular bike tour.

This was the best investment I made on my 4-day Boston trip. Instead of the same old tourist trap, this was a blast and took me all over Boston. I’ve never ridden an e-bike but Susie made it easy. She’s a blast. We covered 20+ miles all over Boston and Cambridge, getting a sense of the geography, how the city moves around, with history and outstanding routes. A high recommendation.
