City of Boston
Urban AdvenTours has worked closely with the city and Mayor Menino to bring forward our joint mission of making Beantown a Green town that is healthy, safe and friendly to bicyclists. We’ve teamed up with the city to put forward the following programs and events: Boston Bikes, the Hub on Wheels Festival, and the Community Ride Series.
League of American Bicyclists
Urban AdvenTours is proud to be partnered with the League in their nationwide mission to advocate and educate on behalf of bicyclists and set up fun rides and events in their communities.
Bikes Belong is a nationwide bicycle advocacy group focusing on four specific areas: Federal Policy and Funding, National Partnerships, Community Grants and Promoting Bicycling.
Charles River Wheelmen
The CRW is a social riding group that organizes and undertakes fun rides all year long. The Wheelmen ride all over New England and through some of the most beautiful scenery you can explore on two wheels.
We understand that you can’t always ride your bicycle, especially during snowy Boston winters, so, if you must drive, we suggest using Zipcar, a car-sharing company based in Boston. It’s the greenest way to drive in Boston.
Emerald Necklace Conservancy
The Emerald Necklace Conservancy brings people together to renew, enliven and advocate for the Emerald Necklace park system. This historic park system serves as the back yard for city dwellers and a destination for more than 1 million visitors and residents each year.
Green Streets Initiative
The Green Streets Initiative is a grassroots organization of people from Cambridge, Massachusetts and surrounding cities, who celebrate, promote, and advocate for the use of alternative transportation.
Clif Bar and Clif Kid snacks:
Urban AdvenTours supports Clif Bar’s commitment to environmental awareness, and we use their ‘Clif Kid’ products for our school programs. Last but not least, this very green company puts out a healthy and delicious product – perfect for a hungry cyclist!
The Greater Boston Visitor and Convention Bureau
Urban AdvenTours has created strong partnerships with the Vistor and Convention Bureau and we are both very excited to offer a breath of fresh air – original, fun and healthy tours of Boston to visitors.
Urban AdvenTours knows that Boston is ‘America’s walking city’, and we support advocacy groups like Walk Boston, who are taking steps (pun intended) to reduce carbon emissions and promote healthy lifestyles here in Boston.
Boston Natural Areas Network (BNAN)
Urban AdvenTours is very happy to be running the ‘Two Wheelin’ Teens: City Bike Trips for Boston Youth’ program. Together with BNAN, we explore Boston parks, bike paths and trails, using our favorite mode of transportation: bikes!
The Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR)
The DCR manages the state’s beautiful open areas, including the Charles River Bike Path, a major bicycle artery in Boston.
Bike and Roll
The people who run Bike and Roll are dedicated to bicycle travel and touring a city on two wheels. Next time you visit New York City, Washington DC, Chicago, San Francisco or their newest location, Miami, you should look these guys up for the ‘wheel deal’. See these great American cities the way they were meant to be seen – by bike!
Landry’s Bicycles is a great bike shop with four locations in New England, one of which is conveniently located on Commonwealth Avenue in Boston. Aside from housing us in the years before we had our own location, the folks at Landry’s are nationally recognized bicycle advocates.
Trek Bicycle’s ‘One World, Two Wheels’ Advocacy Campaign
Through this program, Trek Bicycle, one of the world’s leading bicycle manufacturers, is using its own money and influence to help make bicycling more viable in every community, keeping people and their environments healthy, happy and strong.
