About Us

The Ride Cafe is a bike repair and family travel shop that offers repair services, rentals, retail, with coffee and more. Our primary goal is to enhance the enjoyment and convenience of your trips, whether they’re near or far, all while promoting vibrant bike and transit culture.

Repair & Fitting

We want your trips to go smoothly and we know how frustrating it is when a bike, scooter, or stroller isn’t working properly.  We provide repair, tune-up, assembly, and fittings for bikes, including cargo and electric ones. Additionally, we offer tire repairs for bikes, scooters, and strollers.

While you’re here, stock up on tubes, lights, riding gear, and more. 

Drop off your bike during our regular business hours, or schedule an appointment with our expert mechanic or bike fitter. Same day evening appointments should be scheduled before 6pm.


Taking a flight with your little one? Want to take a train or Lyft with your toddler? We offer various rentals, from car seats and stroller rentals to kids ride-on suitcases to help make your air, train and ride share travel easier.

Planning to bike with your kids? Whether they’ll be towing behind you or riding shot gun, we can accommodate your rental needs.


We sell unique transportation-focused and Boston-themed gifts.  

Pick up something special for the transit rider or bike lover in your life.
