A Ride for the Whole Family

Families are welcome to participate in Hub On Wheels as Hope Riders. Age requirements for cyclists under 18 are below. Riders of all ages will enjoy cruising through Boston’s exciting neighborhoods, including a car-free Storrow Drive all while helping kids at Boston Children’s Hospital.

Age Requirements:

Children age 10-17 ride for FREE but are required to register, and must be accompanied by an adult.

Children under 10 ride for FREE and do not need to register, but can only participate if riding with an adult on a tandem, trail-a-bike, bike seat, or trailer.


All family members may register through the Boston Children’s Hospital Hope Rider website. Children ages 10-17 will receive access to a fundraising page and fundraising center upon registering, but are not required to fundraise. Fundraising incentives apply to riders 10 years and older.

Please note: The course is safe, with few hills, and is approximately 12.5 miles in length. There are no rest/water stops along the Downtown Course. Ride Marshals and support vehicles, as well as city and state police, will be present along the route to assist riders as needed.
