Team MassDOT on Wheels this week joined Boston’s annual Hub on Wheels event and completed a successful 30+ mile route around the city!

MassDOT’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Program Coordinator Peter Sutton and Team were pleased to participate in the city-wide bike ride on September 20.

Hub on Wheels provides three safe routes of 10, 30, or 50 miles of harbor views and hidden pathways, river greenways and Boston’s neighborhoods. Storrow Drive is completely car-free, as is the entire 10-mile route.

Hub on Wheels is part of the Boston Bikes initiative to encourage citizens and visitors to use bicycles for fun, exercise, and transportation.
