A FEW FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Thank you to everyone who has joined us for Hub on Wheels in the past and we look forward to having you join us for the best-ever ride this year!

Whether you have ridden for each of the past 12 years or are contemplating joining in for the first time, we look forward to seeing you early on the morning of Sunday, September 17 on City Hall Plaza! Start preparing now to pedal along CAR-FREE Storrow Drive, explore historic neighborhoods, and take in views of the Boston Harbor with thousands of fellow cyclists from around the region and across the country.  The ride starts and finishes on City Hall Plaza in downtown Boston, with an option of the 10-mile downtown course or the full 40-mile route.

The TD Hub On Wheels citywide bike ride is fully supported, with harbor views and hidden pathways, river greenways and Boston’s wonderful and eclectic neighborhoods. You haven’t seen the Hub until you’ve seen it on two wheels!

The Ride: Both the 10-mile and 40-mile routes will access a car-free Storrow Drive.  To re-open Storrow Drive in a timely fashion, anyone not reaching the 10-mile turnaround by 9:30 a.m. will be turned back early. Please be advised that many any other roads along the 40-mile course are open to traffic, so we ask all riders to obey the rules of the road.  Please remember that this is a RIDE and NOT A RACE!  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, including three stocked Rest Stop areas along the 40-mile route. Again, all rules of the road apply. Please ride safely and courteously.

Riding with children:  Cyclists must be 10 years or older to ride the 10-mile loop. Children under 10 may participate only if riding with an adult on a tandem, trail-a-bike, bike seat, or trailer.  Children 10-17 may ride the 10-mile route for FREE but must register online as an official rider.  Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
