It’s September already, which means the leaves are going to be turning all kinds of beautiful colors in Boston soon. But don’t worry yet, there are still plenty of days of great riding weather left. And another great ride is coming up, bringing together cyclists in the city. The Hub on Wheels Citywide Bike Ride & Festival takes places on September 23. Bike riders from Boston and the surrounds come in and choose from either a 25 mile ride or a 45 mile loop. Even cooler, Storrow Drive will be limited only to bikes during the rides for a car-free experience!
Hub on Wheels is a part of the Boston Digital Bridge Foundation, an organization dedicated to bringing technology, like new computers and comprehensive technology training, to Boston Public School students and their families. You can sign up to sponsor the BDBF here.
The festival also includes food and entertainment. Last year I attended with Urban AdvenTours (we had a booth and rented bikes to loads of excited cyclists), and it was a blast. It even began to rain towards the end of the ride, but that didn’t deter all the eager riders from enjoying themselves out there.
Check out the Hub on Wheels site for all the details. The festival takes place at City Hall Plaza, 1 City Hall Square, Boston, MA.
By the way, I didn’t make it to the MassBike Festival due to an evil stomach bug. I was so disappointed! If you made it, please share your experiences in the comments section so I, and anyone else who couldn’t make it, can live vicariously through you.
