As a bicyclist in Concord, there are options available for your interests and needs! 

With The Concord Trolley's bike rack (coming soon) you can bring your bike with you while touring Concord’s historic sites. Remember that the pilot trolley is FREE, convenient, and sustainable.

In Concord, there are two commuter rail stations, one in West Concord (ADA accessible, with one covered and two uncovered bike racks parking), and another station at Concord Depot (bike racks also available). Outside of morning rush hours, you can bring your bike with you on the train. Reference MBTA's Commuter Rail website for live updates, schedules, where the commuter rail takes you from Concord, and much more. Click on this link to check Reduced Fares eligibility requirements.

Concord Bike Share is an easy and convenient option for renting a bike in town. Bike Share stations are in Concord Visitor Center at 58 Main Street and West Concord entrance to the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail near the bridge over the Nashoba Brook. The Bike Share also has two adaptive bikes available for diverse mobility needs.

The Concord Free Public Library is encouraging children, teens, and adults to bike to the library with the Bike for Books initiative. Every time you bike to the Main Library or the Fowler Branch, show your helmet to a library staff member to stamp your bike card. After 10 stamps, you earn a free $5 gift certificate to Bedford Farms. Thanks to the Friends of the Concord Free Public Library for sponsoring this program.
