Boston By Bike…At Night

Written by Boston Biker on Aug 07

In 1989 The Back Bay Midnight Pedalers started making an annual tour of historic and architectural sites in the Boston area. The ride usually occurs in mid-to-late August, beginning just before midnight on a Saturday night and running until a little after sunrise on Sunday. The ride route and length varies, but is usually around 30 miles.

No pictures from the August 20, 2006 ride — too much rain, not enough photogenic things.

    Do they have an official website to get more info on this bike ride? It is a hard thing to search…especially when trying to find out if it is being hosted this year!
