Hub On Wheels

Hub On Wheels is Boston's largest city-sponsored sporting event.

The ride is fully supported and safe, with three routes: 10, 30, or 50 miles (see map) 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. Marshals along all routes make sure there's plenty of space to ride. Tech support and ride snacks are free of charge.

The registration fee is $45 online. If you are unable to register online, there will be an on-site registration of $55 on the day of the event.

A portion of the proceeds from Hub On Wheels benefit Technology Goes Home, an www.openairboston.net technology training program serving inner-city families through the Boston Public Schools.

If you don't have a bike but still want to ride? Reserve a bike today by contacting our official bike rental partner, Urban Adventours, at (800)[masked] or at www.urbanadventours.com.

For those who are driving to the event, you can park at the Government Center Garage for $3.
See the www.hubonwheels.org website to print out the parking coupon.

We are going to do the 30 mile ride which should take about 3-5 hours includes rest stops and needed breaks. The ride starts at 8am. I will have a meetup sign on my bike.

Please note this is rain or shine. Hopefully, it will be shine.

    I love the ride. This was my third time. Beautiful scenes, and very organized ride.

    I got detoured through Boston / Chelsea and missed the Meetup time and coordinator. could not find anyone in that crowd of thousands. Still, it was such a glorious day in Boston that I opted for the 50 mile loop. Had fun listening to the band and hanging in the Brew tent, too. Sorry to have missed the gang!

    Great event, glad this was posted. I missed the sign but then again I wasn't looking hard enough. I thought I saw a face or two during the ride or break, not entirely sure. I was wearing the Colorado state flag for a jersey.

    I did the 10 miles. It was my first time riding a bicycle. after the winter i might just buy one.

    I did make it to this event, but not early enough to spot, let alone catch up with, anyone visibly connected with the meetup group. Still, I had lots of fun doing the 30-mile route on a perfect Sunday morning (for the second time; my first was in 2007) and if there were some of you who did participate as a group, I'll say that I was with you in spirit.

    I had my meetup sign attached to my safety flag on my bike but apparently it wasn't big enough for everyone to see. Next year, I will to pick a better spot to meet.
    The bike ride was packed with people at the starting line. It took Kirk and I about 40 minutes to start riding.
    After we got going, the ride was worth the wait.

    I'm going to wait until 7:50am. I think this is the time where they start lining people up for the ride.

    O please don't let it be a small sign.
    are you going to wait us all out or leave as soon as the clock hits 7:15?

    We will meet at City Hall Plaza near the vendors.
    I will have a Meetup sign attached to my bike.

    Do you have a street and cross street in mind Brett?
    I'm driving in from Framingham and parking at the Gov. Center parking garage. Depending on how my knees feel will determine whether I complete the thirty or just do the 10. But I really want to do the 30! :) I'll probably be getting there closer to 7:30 then 7:15... I'll be looking for you guys.
    BEST, pheebs

    FYI- this is a BIG event. Unless you pick a meeting spot, you'll never find each other in the sea of cyclists. I recommend something 1-2 blocks away from City Plaza, and then heading over.

    If you are interested in doing the 10 mile ride instead of 30, there is a point on the ride where you can switch to the 10 mile route.
