Sunday, September 22, 2013: Join us for the 9th annual Hub On Wheels citywide bike ride! Experience a car-free Storrow Drive, explore historic neighborhoods, and take in views of the Boston Harbor that you’ve never seen before.
The ride starts and finishes on City Hall Plaza in downtown Boston, with three different routes to choose from: 10, 30 and 50 miles. Registration is now available for what’s sure to be the best ride of the year. You haven’t seen the Hub until you’ve seen it on two wheels.
A few ride details:
Note: Hub on Wheels is presented by Mayor Menino’s Office of Special Events in cooperation with Boston Bikes. Find 2013 event information here.
The ride is fully supported and safe, with three routes: 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. 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 are open to traffic.
Marshals along all routes 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.
The registration fee is $45. You can register online by clicking here. If you are unable to register online, there will be on-site registration open on the day of the event.
