My group and I just rented bikes from Urban Adventours for the weekend, and couldn't be happier about our experience! Everyone who works there is very courteous, accommodating, and knowledgeable about bikes. They gave us a map of Boston with bike trails, adjusted all of our seats, and made sure we were comfortable with everything before sending us off on our way. In addition to the great service, the bikes themselves were fantastic. So light, smooth, and easy to handle. If you ever need to rent a bike in Boston, go to Urban AdvenTours!Original recommendation
Urban adventours had our bikes tuned and ready to go in less than 24 hours. they went above and beyond to add a chain and cassette sets tour our bikes.
These guys did a great job on our bike tour of Boston. Saw more of the city than we anticipated. I was wondering how safe it was, and really there was no issue. Recommend it to anyone who wants to see a lot of the city wo sitting in a vehicle.Original recommendation
I love riding bikes and find it to be the best way to see a city. In the past month alone, we've done guided bike tours in San Francisco, Niagara on the Lake and Boston (Urban AdvenTours).Original recommendation
We are not avid road cyclists, as I prefer the more leisurely approach on a crusier with a basket and bottle of wine or two! I booked the City View tour through Urban AdvenTours and my husband, who is the very cautious (border line paranoid) one was not happy upon our arrival because of the busy streets in Boston. There were 22 in our group and we had 3 guides. Everyone was personally fitted with a bike & helmet, and a water bottle. This process was very efficient and we were off and riding in no time. Also, each bike comes equipped with a zippered canvas bag (on the handlebars) to safely secure your personal items during the tour. Our guides, Ken, Ralph & Lexi were outstanding! #1...They kept us safe (that made husband happy). #2...They were very knowledgeable about the history of this fantastic city and its many restaurants (we asked for suggestions). #3...They made sure our day was captured in photos (they took many pictures of us along the route- which made me happy). At the end of the tour, my husband exclaimed, This was by far the BEST bike tour we've ever done! We can't wait to come back and try another tour offering through Urban AdvenTours...I'd really like to do the Emerald Necklace or the Bikes at Night tours. Our bike tour was indeed, Wheely Fun...Thanks guys!
I have tried quite few Area bike shops. This one has proved many times to be the best. Definitely most convenient bike repair shop I have used. They are very close to my work, they operate good hours so they are often open when I need to pop in. They are always on the ball, call me back, they even call me after to check everything worked out long term (I have never head that kind of care/service), They have made some great improvements to my bike with recommended tires, hubs etc. Their prices seem fair. Always reliable/honest work. I would definitely recommend you get you commuter bike repaired here.Original recommendation
Our girls trip of 4 booked the City View Tour this weekend while we were in Boston and it was one of the highlights of my trip! Biking around is my favorite activity when exploring a new city and Urban AdvenTours definitely did not disappoint. Please note that this specific tour has you riding along with Boston traffic at times and briefly weaving around pedestrians so if that makes you nervous, you may want to look at the other tour options they have. Our guides were fantastic -- making sure everyone was safe and no one was missing from our tour group of 16. When they tell you to bring sunscreen, a sports drink and a snack -- definitely listen. While they provide a water bottle for everyone, I must've sucked mine down too quickly and ran out -- although, we were near the end when that happened. And since the sun was blazing down on us -- we definitely had to reapply our sunscreen during the middle of the ride. And of course, we were all pretty hungry at the end of the tour. I think the entire tour lasted around 2 1/2 to 3 hours -- it was a great ride on a beautiful day. Definitely would do another tour with these guys again. I had tons of fun!Original recommendation
