I am moving from the DC suburbs to Boston in August. I guess I am a bit spoiled here with low-traffic country roads practically in my backyard.
I will be living in Back Bay, so right in the heart of Boston. I've been looking around, but I'm not sure about where to ride safely in the area. Where do Bostonians (people who actually live in the city, not the metro area) go to ride? Are there any local clubs that meet up in the city for training rides? What routes do you take, and do you usually get out of the city for a ride? Please share clubs that I could look into joining, since I would like to get into the cycling community in my new city! Hoping to get some cycling in the fall before winter sets in.
Also, I won't have a car, so driving out to a suburb wouldn't be feasible for me, unless I rent a Zipcar or something.
