Often derided as the “People’s Republic of Cambridge,” the city across the Charles from Boston is as historic and diverse as its more populous neighbor. Appropriate to its famous blue-blood pedigree and Ivy League focal point, the city’s borders form the shape of a bow tie, which this ride follows around its major highlights. From the Cambridge Common, Tory Row, and Harvard Yard, to the working-class neighborhoods of North Cambridge, to the tech havens of MIT and Kendall Square, this bow-tie loop explores the many faces of densely populated Cambridge.
