Join us on September 20th, 2015 to bike through a car-free Storrow Drive, explore historic neighborhoods, and take in views of the Boston Harbor with thousands of other cyclists. The ride starts and finishes on City Hall Plaza in downtown Boston, with three different routes to choose from. Registration for 2015 is now open, for what’s sure to be the best ride of the year.
The Hub on Wheels city-wide bike ride is fully supported and safe, with three routes that provide 10, 30, or 50 miles of harbor views and hidden pathways, river greenways and Boston’s wonderful and eclectic neighborhoods. Storrow Drive is completely car-free, as is the entire 10-mile route.
You haven’t seen the Hub until you’ve seen it on two wheels! Register Now!
A Few Ride Details:
Note: Hub on Wheels is presented by Boston’s Office of Special Events in cooperation with Boston Bikes.
The Ride: You can choose to complete a 10, 30, or 50 mile long route. To reopen Storrow Drive in a timely fashion, anyone not reaching the 10 mile turnaround by 9:30 will be turned back early. Many other roads along the 30 and 50-mile routes are open to traffic. Marshals will be along all routes to make sure there’s plenty of space to ride. Tech support and ride snacks are free of charge. All rules of the road apply. Please ride safely and courteously.
