Drivers heading into Boston Sunday morning will find Storrow Drive and some downtown streets closed as more than 4,000 cyclists take over the roads for the annual Hub on Wheels.
Mechanics are working full-tilt to get the Hubway bike fleet ready for the road.
Thieves have a new target. The number of bike thefts is soaring across the state.
Police in Brookline, Boston and at Boston University took to the streets on Tuesday to help boost bike safety.
It was a sudden and unwelcome change for bikers when city crews removed bike lanes along Main Street in Charlestown.
