With provided bicycles and helmets, cyclists embark on one of Concord Bike Tours’ four 2.5- to 3-hour signature routes, each of which explores a specific piece of local history or scenery and includes water and snacks or lunch, depending on the time. The Underground Railroad tour delves into the city’s abolitionist history by bringing riders to homes that sheltered escaped slaves. The Concord Authors tour examines the abodes and inspirations of famed local writers such as Emerson and Thoreau, and cyclists on the Revolutionary War tour glide through Minute Man National Park to learn about battles and frisbee-playing redcoats.<p>

Concord Bike Tours

After years of teaching preschool, Sue Merlino graduated to a new passion in life when she turned her enthusiasm for bicycling and her hometown into a career exploring Concord's history atop a two-wheeler. Her resulting brainchild, Concord Bike Tours, wends through the heavily treed lanes of the city, elucidating the history of notable locations such as the Emerson House, the abodes of lesser-known abolitionists, and the site where Thoreau kissed his first tree. Four regularly run tours take up to 10 bicyclists on 2.5- to 3-hour journeys, with optional sidecars for children younger than 8 provided. Sue and her family will also plot custom trips for clients interested in longer rides, different scenery, or preparing for a Jeopardy! audition.
