ED­I­TOR’S NOTE

Where Boston - - CONTENTS -

Sum­mer­time is now giv­ing Bos­ton a big, warm hug—and we should re­turn the ges­ture by set­ting out to ex­plore the city by foot or by bike. The tim­ing for a two-wheeled foray into the Hub could not be any bet­ter, as all signs point to a gen­uine cy­cling revo­lu­tion with deep roots right here and the po­ten­tial to spread around the world.

We’re es­pe­cially excited about Su­per­pedes­trian (see our cover story), a com­pany born in the MIT geek-hatch­ery and poised to change for­ever the way we ne­go­ti­ate our way around any city. If you get a chance, try their Copen­hagen Wheel for your­self and per­haps you’ll joins us in be­liev­ing that the e-bike com­mu­nity has a bold new leader.

As you’re ped­dling or am­bling around Bos­ton don’t for­get to check out our al­ter­na­tive foodie tour—a Feed ‘Em Trail, if you like—which will guide you not only to clas­sic eater­ies but also to in­cred­i­ble places off the beaten track that some­times get over­looked. Lo­cal din­ing ex­pert Mat Schaf­fer has writ­ten the per­fect in­sider’s food fea­ture, so don’t for­get to take this is­sue with you when you head out for a bite or two.

Of course, there’s loads more to dis­cover in June’s Where Bos­ton, from a neigh­bor­hood (Lower Mills) that’s best ac­cessed by vin­tage trol­ley, to a handy roundup of ex­cel­lent lo­cal craft beers and an ex­tended guide to that week­end ex­plorer’s de­light, Martha’s Vine­yard.

So get on your bike and be safe—June is a great time to be in and around Bos­ton.
