Urban AdvenTours is a unique, eco-friendly company, offering bike tours, rentals, and sales out of Boston’s Historic North End.
We’ve come a long way since our founder, Andrew Prescott, started running bike tours out of his apartment in 2004. Since then, we’ve expanded by way of partnering with other local bike shops and spreading the word. Now, we have two storefronts of our very own: the tour and rental shop at 103 Atlantic Avenue, and the bike shop a few doors down at 109 Atlantic Avenue.
We still give the great historic tours that made us famous, leaving from 103 Atlantic Avenue every day at 10 AM & 2 PM and a 6 PM evening tour Thursday thru Sunday. We also offer quality bike rentals, both of our standard Kona Dew Boston hybrids and of more technical bikes. Over at the bike shop, you can find a wide selection of new and used bikes, as well as tons of apparel and gear. A friendly bike mechanic can also help you with any repairs or tune-ups your bike may need.
Our team is what makes us really stand out. We’re fun, friendly people who love to share our enthusiasm for bikes, Boston, and biking in Boston, whether it’s by giving a tour or helping choose a new bike in the shop. We can also point you towards hidden gems all over Boston and the surrounding area. Think of us as your own personal Bike Concierge!
Years before Dan and Maria founded DBC City Bike design, the duo resolved to reduce their dependence on gasoline. This resolution led the couple to Europe, where they hopped aboard Dutch bicycles that redefined how they thought about comfort on two-wheeled mounts. When Dan and Maria returned stateside, they began importing and selling these revolutionary rides through their new store, The Dutch Bicycle Company (The DBC). However, the hills, long-distance commutes, and stairs that define many American cities revealed many inconveniences in the unmodified Dutch model, so DBC added City Bike design to its name and they began building their custom Swifts, calibrated to handle the rigors of urban, bike-riding lifestyles. Today, the founding couple and their design staff build these bikes to order, modify existing rides, and provide tune-ups that, like prison-gang relay races, keep chains moving smoothly and swiftly.
