    Not worth the money or time

    While this is a great mode of exercise, the tour wasn't really all that informative. We stopped just a few times in the 4 hours, so we passed by a lot of sites but didn't learn anything about them. We were quite disappointed in the value offered. We would have been better off just renting a bike for the day if all we wanted was some exercise.

    I didn't like biking through so much traffic. It was supposed to be a Fall Foliage Bike ride but we had to ask Pell to stop a few times so that we could take pictures, which he did. Also, one of the bikes got a flat tire and it took 40 minutes to fix. That seemed like a long time, but I was glad that he was finally able to do it. The ride through the arboretum and the ride back to the north end was pleasant when we weren't in the traffic. I am sure that is hard to avoid in Boston but maybe a different route would have been better. I am glad that we all survived and we did see some beautiful trees that we would not have seen otherwise.
    Mooie fietstocht

    Mooie fietstocht, uitstekende fietsen en een aardige zeer onderhoudende gids. Voor het mooie waren we iets te vroeg om de kleuren van de indian summer te kunnen bewonderen
