Join Alan and Neil in exploring the streets and trails between the Seaport District in Boston and the Encore Casino area in Everett. Starting from South Station,

Driving directions to the location and spot to meet at:

Meeting place: Main entrance to South Station, corner of Atlantic Ave. and Summer St. in Boston.

Transportation: On weekends, bicycles may be brought on Orange, Blue and Red Line trains. However, they are always prohibited on the Green Line. We strongly recommend parking at a 'T' station outside of the city and taking the subway into town. Quincy Adams, Braintree, or Alewife on the Red Line are good options. Oak Grove, Malden Center, Sullivan Square, or Forest Hills are Orange Line parking options. Blue Line stations with parking include Suffolk Downs and Orient Heights.

Directions from the Red Line: Take the subway to South Station.

Directions from Orange Line: Get off at Downtown Crossing. Walk and/or ride your bike southeast on Summer St., away from the Boston Common, to South Station at the corner of Atlantic Ave.

Directions from Blue Line: Get off at Aquarium. Walk and/or ride your bike south on Atlantic Ave., away from the Marriott Long Wharf hotel, to South Station.

Downtown Parking: If you plan to drive and park in Boston, your best deal is the Post Office Square Parking Garage located at 55 Pearl Street. It has elevators that can accommodate bikes from the parking levels to the street. Their weekend parking is posted at $9 per day.

Note: If you take the 'T', you may have to carry your bike up/down one or more sets of stairs.
