We had a great time at the Hub on Wheels this year. This is our third year riding a tandem at this event. We did the 10 mile route the first year, the 30 mile route last year and the 50 mile route this year. We were a bit confused at the beginning, though, because it wasn't raining. This is our first year with decent weather and we thought we might have been at the wrong ride ;-)
We got there very early. Stef had not received her registration packet in the mail so we wanted to get there before the lines got too long. We've found that it's much easier to ride over there in the morning rather than make Jonathan drive us. We had ridden the tandem down here last Thursday. We left here while it was still dark and got to see the sun come up as we crossed the Longfellow Bridge. I love being on a bike as the sun comes up.
The ride got started with a wonderful trip up Storrow Drive and back. They close it for this ride once a year and I wish they'd make it a bikeway permanently! It is so much fun to ride there.
This is Stef at the first rest stop. I took a picture of her eating Fig Newtons. She never eats this kind of thing except on bike trips. I just wanted to have photographic evidence.
