The Sept. 25 event features "Hub on Wheels,"city-ride bike ride that will start and end at City Hall Plaza, taking bikers down a car-free Storrow Drive and around historic neighborhoods. BIkers can chose between routes of 10, 30 and 50 miles in length, and there is a $45 entry fee for individuals.

More than 200 professional racers, including Olympic cyclists will participate in the TD Bank Mayor's Cup Race, with competitors in a men's race, a women's race, and a juniors' race competing for $40,000 in prize money.

The biking celebration will be Sunday, September 25, with an all-day Boloco Bike Party going on at City Hall Plaza. The all-city bike ride will start at 8 a.m. and end at 2 p.m., and the Mayor's Cup race will take place at Government Center from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.
