    [QUOTE]Do yourself a favor, your family a favor and Bostonians a favor and do not ride your bike on the streets of Boston.  Consider the suburbs.

    maybe some of the people driving their cars unnecessarily around the city centre (i.e. most people driving in  Boston) could do everyone else a favour and start riding their bikes to work.
    think of all the gas money you could save.

    MapMyRide.com is a good resource for, well, mapping your rides.

    This is a beautiful ride, but a long one: 44 miles. It starts at the beginning of the Somerville Community Path, takes you through Davis and Trolley Squares before connecting you with the Minuteman in Cambridge, which you take to its end in Bedford. Then you follow Rte 62 to Concord past the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, then take Walden Street to, well, Walden Pond before heading into Waltham via Rte 117. From Waltham, you connect up with the Charles River Reservation and the Blue Heron Trail that runs along the Charles. From there, you connect up with Soldier's Field Road and the Esplanade and swing around back to Cambridge and Somerville via the Museum of Science. It's a relatively flat ride with a mild uphill grade at the beginning of the Minuteman and just a few tough hills as you bike through Lincoln into Waltham. Here's the map:

    This one has 1 aggressive hill, but the scenery is also great (30 miles):

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Best ways to see Boston by bike : I might have felt the same but really enjoyed last Sunday's Hub on Wheels ride. DO it! You will love it. I rode parts of Boston I never saw before and a lot of old things from new perspective. Guess what? I also learned any Sunday morning is a great time to ride Boston. Maybe not Storrow Drive but out to Arnold Arboredum and over to Castle Island!

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Best ways to see Boston by bike : I agree.  I would never bike around Boston except where there are dedicated paths. And even some of those (like the Minute Man Bikeway) are too crowded at times to be enjoyable.

    In response to the person that said there are no good bike routes in Boston. Maybe if you got on your bike and actually rode these routes you wouldn't be so quick to make this statement. You can ride on a dedicated bike path from the Museum of science, all the way to Waltham. Also, now that I have kids, these paths are excellent choices. It's true that Metro Boston sucks with regards to being able to ride around the city without fear that you will be killed.  However, I've ridden all of these paths and they're great way to keep me and my family entertained and safe.
