Bikes at Night

There’s something about riding at night. The sun begins to set, the air cools, the city slowly begins to calm as the day’s work ends and folks head home. Suddenly, the sound of two wheels whirring across pavement is more calming than usual.

The UA crew has known for years that evening rides are the most relaxing and the most fun, so this year we’ve decided to share the experience. Our Bikes at Night tour shows you the city as the sun goes down and the lights come up, focusing on Boston’s beautiful waterfront. See some of Boston’s coolest sights while keeping an eye out for fun restaurants and after-dark hang outs for later in the evening.

This tour covers many hidden gems in Boston, including:

  • Long Wharf
  • The John Joseph Moakley Federal CourthouseSunset on a summer evening
  • Black Falcon Cruise Terminal
  • The Boston ICA
  • The Rose Kennedy Greenway – Boston’s newest public park
  • South Station, Dewey Square, and the Financial District
  • Breathtaking views of the skyline at night!

The Bikes at Night is $40 per guest and includes an individually-fitted bike, helmet, water, and, of course, a friendly and knowledgeable guide who will lead you on your travels. The tour is 1.5-2 hours long and covers 5-7 miles. Come enjoy a quiet evening in Boston the right way – on a bike!

While water will be provided, you might consider bringing a sports drink or snack.

FAQ’s About Bikes at Night

Q: Is this tour good for beginner riders and young children?
A: Maybe. This tour is shorter than most, but it is almost completely on streets. Riders should be comfortable riding on streets, alongside light to moderate traffic, on some streets that do not have a bike lane. Guests looking for an easier tour with very little street riding should consider the Tour de Boston.

Q: Do you offer private tours for families or groups?
A: Yes! Please refer to our Private Tours page for more details. Minimum orders and additional fees will apply.

Q: Does this tour cover the Freedom Trail or other Downtown sites?
A: Not exactly. While the tour will ride by many of the major tourist attractions in Boston, the focus of this tour is on the park spaces and urban design of the City of Boston.
