Riding Like Paul Revere, Minus the Horse in Cambridge, Massachusetts
Boston has an odd relationship with cyclists. The city’s narrow, hopelessly tangled streets limit sight lines and crowd bikes and cars into uncomfortably small spaces. Luckily, the Minuteman Bikeway begins just steps from the northern edge of the MBTA’s Red Line in Cambridge. Like most paved urban bike trails, the Minuteman was traversed by locomotives before its conversion for bikes. Unlike most paved urban bike trails, this one is nearly identical to the path Paul Revere took on his famous ride.
