Natural Awakenings Greater Boston - Rhode Island

Hike or Bike: Boston Offers Great Options for Both

Boston brims with recently created opportunities for cyclists which has landed it on Apartment Guide’s list of top cities for cyclists. The Charles River Esplanade (aka the Dr. Paul Dudley White Bike Path) is a stunning urban greenway with views of the Boston skyline, local boats and the famous colleges of Cambridge. The city has its own bikeshare program for those yet to purchase their own bike. Boston’s enticing cycling destinations include the rolling 3.5-mile Franklin Park loop; the gorgeous Emerald Necklace and The Fens (designed by Fredrick Law Olmstead of Central Park fame); the 7-mile run from Audubon Circle to Chestnut Hill Reservoir; the 5-mile Southwest Corridor to Jamaica Plain; and the 7.7- mile stretch from the JFK Museum to scenic Castle Island.
