Hub on Wheels

Registration

The registration fee is $50 and includes ride support, snacks, gift bag and a day of fun! SIGN UP NOW!
New this year! Hub On Wheels believes in giving back to the community and supporting local programs. This year, in addition to Tech Goes Home, Hub On Wheels is proud to support Boston Bikes, Special Olympics Massachusetts, and Boston Parks & Recreation Fund. $5 of your registration fee will support one of these four beneficiaries. Participants will be able to select which beneficiary they want to support.

Cyclists must be 10+ years to ride the 10 mile loop and 12 + years to ride the longer loops. Children of any age are allowed as tandem riders with an adult.

Be sure to register early! September 9th is the last day to register before the $5 late fee. Online registration closes Saturday, September 20th at 12:00am. On-site registration is available but the cost is $55 to help us cover the expense of renting lots of registration tents.

Upon check in on event day, registrants will receive a rider packet, which will include a rider number and event information.

About hub on wheels

Hub On Wheels (HOW) was founded in 2005 with three goals: create an important civic event, showcase Boston’s neighborhoods and parks, and raise money for important causes. Each year the ride brings together participants, hundreds of volunteers, and numerous local businesses in celebration of Boston and bicycling. With routes looping through Downtown, the Back Bay, Jamaica Plain, Roslindale, Hyde Park, Mattapan, Dorchester, and South Boston, it presents a truly unique way to see our great city. Hub On Wheels is Boston’s largest city-sponsored sporting event.

This year, in addition to Tech Goes Home, Hub On Wheels is proud to support Boston Bikes, Special Olympics Massachusetts, and Boston Parks & Recreation Fund. $5 of your registration fee will support one of these four beneficiaries. Participants will be able to select which beneficiary they want to support.

Volunteering

We have volunteer positions for both ride preparation on Saturday, September 20th, and the ride itself on Sunday, September 21st. So, whether you’ve already signed up to ride, or you feel that you aren’t quite up to riding, you can still be part of the big event by volunteering.

On Saturday we are looking for Signage Volunteers and Goodie Bag Stuffers. The signage volunteers drive a portion of the route in a group of 2-4 and put up directional signs. The Goodie Bag Stuffers, do, well, just that.

On Sunday we are looking for Registration Volunteers as well as Food and Goodie Bag Distributors. Registration Volunteers will check in participants before the event and Food and Goodie Bag Distributors will set up and distribute our free give-aways after the ride.

Volunteering for Hub On Wheels really is a lot of fun. Volunteers will receive a free Wheelworks Volunteer t-shirt, a free lunch, and automatic entrance into our volunteer raffle.
