Created in the seventeenth century [circ 1673] by the postal service to connect Boston and New York it would be another 100 years before the first stagecoach travelled this important route and a few years later  saw George Washington, the newly inaugurated first president of the United States of America, travel this same route from New York on a visit to Boston City. Now you can cycle the same route on our fully supported cycle Boston To New York bike.
We don’t think you will find a more historic and beautiful route in the USA than this!
