My husband and I did the revolutionary war bike tour last week. We originally were supposed to go on a Tuesday afternoon, but Mark was helpful in advising us to change to Wednesday morning since rain was forecasted. We did change to the morning trip and were glad we did--tuesday afternoon ended up being very rainy and it would have been much less enjoyable!
We met at the parking lot across from the North Bridge and the Old Manse. There were supposed to be an additional 6 or more in our group but they never showed--that was a bit frustrating as we waited for 30 minutes to see if they would show. We started with the North Bridge and then headed through concord past the Alcott house and other sites. Our guide was a young man who was about the age of our kids but he was very knowledgeable about the battle and we enjoyed him. We stopped intermittently for him to give us background and the signifcance of particular spots. The ride through the minute man historical site is very beautiful. They are attempting to restore the land to its state back in the 1770's with livestock, agriculture, etc. We rode to the Hartwell Tavern and were fortunate to be able to watch a demonstration of musket firing. We looked around the tavern building and spoke a bit with one of the rangers and then headed back towards Concord. The trip was about 21/2 hours--probably would have been longer if we had had a bigger group. The bikes were OK--not tip top condition and there was a bit of an issue finding an allen wrench to get seat adjusted, etc but in the end it was all good!
Definitely would recommend this as a great way to explore the sites especially for a family!
