Wheeling through the Hub

Several thousand people joined together yesterday for Hub on Wheels, a bike ride through the neighborhoods of the City of Boston. The ride is a fundraiser for the Boston Digital Bridge Foundation, a which provides technology training and computer equipment to underserved communities.

We had about 80 people from BIDMC on the ride, and several more of our folks also joined with the people at Cataldo Ambulance Company to provide first aid along the 10 mile, 30 mile, and 50 mile routes. Some of the riders and first aid crew are shown in the pictures above.

We were greeted by Steve Miller, originator of the Hub on Wheels event, and Nicole Freedman, Mayor Tom Menino's bicycle "czarina," both of whom are pictured here as well. I think Nicole was giving me some kind of hint with the sign she is carrying.
