Biking to BOS?

Has anyone seen bike facilities at BOS? Have a weekend trip coming up, and considering biking in. I've emailed Massport, but not response.

There are not enough Kryptonite locks in the world to convince me to leave a decent bike at the airport.
From Googling, it seems there are uncovered bike racks at a Terminal A. And a bike cage at South Station, and then the Silver line.

Good point, didn't think about a T stop. Also, the bike was only $35--not that I'd be happy if it went away, but I haven't invested that much into it yet.

Probably can't bike through the tunnels from Boston proper to the airport, nor over the Tobin bridge. You could get there a roundabout way through Chelsea or Google Maps suggests using a ferry to avoid the tunnels

This seems like a crazy idea to me.

I don't know for sure, but it appears on Google Maps that you could come onto airport property via Frankfort Street to the Service Road, but I don't know where else you'd be able to go by bike once you're there.

Good thing I'm young and crazy enough to try it.

This. The bike cage at South Station is free, but requires a registered CharlieCard to access. So random people off the street can't just get into the cage.
