Give a Ring (of Your Bell)!

As we’re sure you know, it’s polite to ring your bell when you’re about to pass a person, car, or other cyclist. Although we do love a good, “on your left!” (despite it’s alleged disappearance), we like bells for a few reasons: They’re a loud, distinct sound, which can cut through the city noise (and…

Boston's Premier Bike Tours & Rentals

A most excellent time

"We had a most excellent time with Mike and Brad leading us in the Tour de Boston tour, the family friendly tour. The company was both highlighted in Fodor's Boston and AAA's guides as being top notched. The tour was gentle and easy. Our friends who haven't rode bikes for decades also loved the tour. If we ever come to Boston again, we will definitely use this company again. Guides were great. We always felt safe. This is such a great way to experience the city. I am glad I brought my own snack."

Well done!

"We took the bike tour today (don't remember which one but it was just under 2.5 hours) and it was so wonderful! It was nice to be out in the town, on the streets, in the parks and landmarks. You could take it all in. The sights, the smells, the people, the culture and history of Boston. The team were top notch! Professional, safe, knowledgeable and fun. I highly recommend this to everyone! Our friends who had been to Boston many many times said they saw and learned things that they never did before. Well done!"

A great way to see Boston

"The tour was great! Charles is a fantastic guide that loves sharing his city. We upgraded the bike rental that came with the Go Boston card to a bike tour. A great way to see Boston. Don't worry about bringing water. A full cold water bottle was provided along with a bike bag to carry a few things and bag check to hold things you don't need on the bike. Bikes were all Kona Dew Plus in good condition."

Very friendly

"We loved renting bikes from urban adventures. I had four kids with me ages 6 through 12. The guys at Urban Adventures got us hooked up with bikes, helmets and locks really quickly. They were patient as we tried different bike sizes. We are all experienced bikers, which was good because we had to ride with a little Boston traffic (in a bike lane) before getting to the bike path next to the Charles. If you are not comfortable on a bike you might want to do a tour so you don't have to worry about navigating this part. We rode about 5 miles along the Charles to Harvard, really beautiful trail (the Esplinade). The urban adventure guys were very friendly and gave us directions as we headed off to our next stop. Would definitely rent from them again."

Would 100% recommend!

"Urban AdvenTours is fantastic. We booked a City View Tour last minute as we wanted to explore the city a bit, but also get some exercise. The guides were great--very knowledgeable and kind throughout the tour. When you arrive, they fit you to a helmet and bike to make sure you're comfortable for the ride. I never felt uncomfortable on the city streets, there were dedicated bike lanes and traffic let you by. We did about 11 miles all told over 3 hours--the pace was very manageable. We felt like we saw a lot of Boston and learned some great facts about the city. Would 100% recommend!"
