The Minuteman Commuter Bikeway may be Boston’s best-known rail-trail, but it’s by no means the only game in town. Across the Commonwealth, bike advocates tirelessly refashion former railroad passages into dedicated bike paths. Opened in 2012, the Northern Strand Community Trail runs from Everett to Lynn, passing through Malden, Revere, and Saugus along the way. This ride along an official link in the East Coast Greenway offers the rare chance of not only riding from dense suburb to picturesque woodlands, but also of watching biking history unfold as the trail continues to stretch to the sea.
