Attention, Boston bikers! Is Sunday, September 25th, 2011 highlighted, starred, sharpied, surrounded by exclamation points, or otherwise marked on your calendars? If not, mark it now: Hub On Wheels, Boston’s annual citywide bike ride, is scheduled for the last Sunday of September. We all love Hub On Wheels because it turns Boston into a big, rolling community.
The Hub on Wheels event closes large swaths of Boston to cars, creating long biking routes through the city. There are three main routes to choose from: a 10-mile, a 30-mile, and a 50-mile.
The routes all start from City Hall Plaza, where a bike festival will be ongoing all day long. Naturally, Urban AdvenTours will be there, with our telltale green-fendered bicycles marking out our tent. We’ll be well-stocked with our custom-made cargo bags, pocketed jerseys, and, of course, our famous I Bike Boston t-shirts, sweatshirts, and water bottles.
We’ll also be there to rent you bikes, of course! We have a special discount available for participants in any Hub On Wheels events. We’ll have both our standard Kona Dew hybrids, with the snazzy green fenders you see all over town, and a selection of Giant and Specialized road bikes. Call for reservations on road bikes.
Even if you aren’t in the mood for a bike ride yourself, Hub On Wheels is still well worth checking out. From City Hall Plaza you can watch the annual TD Bank Mayor’s Cup Professional Criterium Race. Watch the best bikers in the city cut sharp corners in a tight, fast-paced race around Government Center. It’s the height of cycling entertainment, and you can watch it right from the front lines!
So come out on September 25th and celebrate bikes at Boston’s annual Hub On Wheels. And make sure to stop by Urban AdvenTours so you can tell the world, “I Bike Boston.”
