The Riverside Boat Club is a private, non-profit, rowing club on the Charles River in Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States of America. Founded in 1869 by workers from the Riverside Press, Riverside quickly established a reputation as a racing club, a tradition that continues today.

While Riverside leaves learn-to-row opportunities to the many quality teaching programs on the Charles River, it is committed to providing quality rowing, coaching and equipment for all other levels, recreational rower through international competitor. Riverside seeks to train elite athletes with the "potential to win medals at the world championships, not simply those good enough to make the [National] team."[1]
