What you'll do

Weather permitting, we'll open up again in April! I provide a quality e-bike (Ohm, Kalkhoff, Raleigh, Izip), and a spiffy bike helmet. All bikes have both hand brakes and gears, so for safety, all riders MUST be experienced and competent using both. All riders must agree to wear a helmet. 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 MIT. We will then stop for 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 few blocks. The tour lasts about 4-5 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 and comparatively safe cycling environment. I hope to see you with the famous "e-bike grin" as you glide along! Regrettably, I cannot accommodate anyone shorter than about 4'10". I can sometimes accommodate different dates and times. New England weather is unpredictable so I cancel the tour if the weather conditions are not safe. You'll receive a full refund.

Susie

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 semi-retired 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 amazing 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!

Where you'll be

We'll meet in Jamaica Plain (a part of Boston) where you'll meet your bike. Then we will head down the bike path along the "Emerald Necklace", a park designed by Olmstead, to Fenway Park and Kenmore Square. We'll ride along the Charles River, then cross 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 tour!

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

Riders MUST have prior on-road cycling experience and they must be competent using both gears and handbrakes. Riders must also wear a helmet (which I provide). Please tell me your height when booking so that I can choose the right bike. Contact me for info about other possible times and dates
