It is Boston Bike Week so here are a couple of special events from the bike shop at Urban AdvenTours at 109 Atlantic Avenue. See their blog at www.urbanadventours.com/blog for more information. The first tour is free and open to the public.
Wednesday and Thursday, May 19 & 20: Urban AdvenTours Bike Week Open House Then Rollin’ Out
In Celebration of Boston Bike Week and because we want everyone on two wheels to get out and enjoy the fun, Urban AdvenTours will be hosting our “Bike Week Open House and Rollin’ Out” events. We’ll be providing FREE, basic tune ups, introducing you to our new Show Room in the North End, and leading an evening bicycle tour of Boston.
Basic tune ups — which include checking tire pressure, tightening parts and lubricating components– will be from 5:00pm – 5:45pm. This will be followed by a brief tour of our spaces and description of our programs. At 6:00pm, we will depart for the Bikes@Night tour. The tour will be an hour-and-fifteen-minute loop that will depart and finish at the shop. This is a great introduction for learning how to ride in the city!
You will need a bicycle in good working condition to attend the ride and helmets are required. Don’t have a bike? No worries. Bicycles are available to rent from the shop; we just ask you schedule one in advance to ensure you’ve got a ride!
Did we mention this event is FREE and open to the public?! Urban AdvenTours is located on Atlantic Ave in the Mercantile Mall building with a Show Room at 109 Atlantic Ave and Headquarters at 103 Atlantic Ave. For further information, contact the Urban AdvenTours shop by phone (617.670.0637) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Sunday, May 23: Urban AdvenTours Paul Revere Ride to Freedom
Departs at 9am from 103 Atlantic Ave.; Price: $75
The Urban AdvenTours Paul Revere Ride to Freedom follows the path of Paul Revere’s famous midnight ride. On this special edition tour, bicycles replace horses as you ride back in time and recount the opening days of the American Revolution hour by hour over a 25 mile route. There’s no better way to experience Boston’s famous past than the up-close perspective of a bicycle.
This extensive tour brings you to all the major points on Revere’s ride, including:
# The North End
# The Old North Church
# Lexington Green
# Battle Road
# North Bridge in Concord
The ride starts in Boston and takes you along the popular Minuteman Bike Path. After trekking out to the location of the first battle of the American Revolution, the Battle of Lexington and Concord, take a well-deserved train ride back to Boston. This ride is open to everyone, but riders must be able to maintain pace for the duration of the tour. Our knowledgeable and friendly guides will ensure you have a fun and comfortable ride. Tour includes individually fitted bikes, helmets, and water for all guests. Advanced reservations are required.
What Is Not Included?
Lunch and train tickets for the ride home are not included in the price of a ticket. Please be prepared to purchase these items on your own.
