The 10th annual Hub On Wheels citywide ride, presented by Mayor Martin J. Walsh and TD Bank, takes to the streets on Sunday, Sept. 21, giving cycling enthusiasts and families of all ages unprecedented access to explore historic Boston. Riders can chose from three different courses, each offering cyclists the opportunity to coast through some of Boston’s most eclectic neighborhoods – including a car-free Storrow Drive – with breaks at Arnold Arboretum, Codman Square and Carson Beach.
The ride starts and finishes at City Hall Plaza in downtown Boston, with 10-, 30- and 50-mile route option. Fruit, water and light snacks will be provided for riders at various stops throughout each course.
Cyclists must be 10+ years to ride the 10-mile loop, and 12+ years to ride the longer loops. Children under 10 ride for free and may participate only if riding with an adult on a tandem, trail-a-bike, bike seat or trailer.
The Hub On Wheels ride is part of the city’s annual weekend cycling celebration, which also includes the 6th annual TD Bank Mayor’s Cup pro cycling races, held on Saturday, Sept. 20 at City Hall Plaza. The TD Bank Mayor’s Cup – also free to the public – will feature more than 200 of the cycling world’s top professional racers, including former Olympians and national champions.
To sign up, visit Hub On Wheels registration or go to the on-site registration tent when you arrive at City Hall Plaza. The registration fee is $50 prior to the event and $55 on-site.
