There are so many bike shops in the Boston area, it’s hard to highlight one. But for years Wheelworks (which also has a sister store, Ace Wheelworks) has been voted (and simply unquestionably considered) one of the best in Boston. In fact between the two, they’ve been voted “Best of Boston” for 2011, 2013, 2014, and 2015.
Maybe it’s their huge inventory, their annex store, the huge number of fat bikes they carry, or the chance to see brands like All City, Cielo, Moots, Salsa, Surly, and Juliana that you don’t see “in the flesh” in every shop.
If family is along, there’s a great splash park that you’ll pass on the way to the shop. Think fountains and rocks. The park it’s a part of also has a shallow stream kids love, and walking trails.
