Dr. Paul Dudley White Bike Path

The Dr. Paul Dudley White Bike Path is a 17-mile multi-use loop encircling the Charles River from the Museum of Science to Watertown Square. It is named after Paul Dudley White, a Roxbury native who was a strong advocate for exercise and diet as a way to prevent heart disease. White was also a co-founder of the American Heart Association and served as Dwight D. Eisenhower’s physician following the president’s heart attack.
