CycleLife Studio's fleet of stationary bikes can set a pace that's comfortable for everyone from recreational cyclists to seasoned triathletes. Though each class's group format lends an air of camaraderie to the proceedings, individual students can adjust their bike's resistance level to ensure a fully customized experience. Set to fun and motivating playlists, the low-impact workouts torch calories and sculpt muscles without ever forcing you to bike by Old Man McGurn's cobwebby mansion again.
For 44 years, adventurers and outdoor athletes have emerged from Country Ski and Sport armored in quality apparel and equipped with sturdy vessels, poised to conquer mountains, rivers, and bike paths. The Stenson family—which founded the sportsman’s haven in 1970—shares the clientele’s passion for outdoor excursions, and staff three facilities with a team of knowledgeable employees boasting more than 225 collective years of industry experience. The friendly staff draws upon outdoor know-how to match customers with pairs of skis, snowboards, kayaks, or bikes that suit their needs and size. Adventure-appropriate apparel from North Face or Under Armour keeps bodies warm while they’re slaloming down slopes or luging to work. To help customers prepare for the sporting seasons, technicians also repair and tune up skis, snowboards, and bicycles, and offer seasonal leasing options for snow equipment.
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!
Bay Back Bicycles caters to every type of rider, where they're simply looking for a quick way to get to the grocery store or are competing in a triathlon. The shop offers everything riders need to take to the streets, from cycling apparel and helmets to the bikes themselves—including options with an electronic drivetrain to make shifting easy in any terrain, whether pavement or quicksand. If you already own a bike but it's in need of repairs, a team of technicians can fix brakes or refit new wheels to keep you rolling in optimum condition. Then, once you're back on two wheels, you can join one of the shop's group rides to zoom around town with like-minded neighbors.
