Working together to make the city we love a place we LUV to ride in.

At HUBLUV, we believe that biking is not only a better way to get around Boston, but it’s also the best way to get out and connect, explore, exercise and enjoy life a little more, and we want to make that option accessible to everyone. That’s why we’re working in partnership with an awesome community of biking advocates. Together, we’re building and maintaining an amazing bike network that improves access to trail systems, connects towns and cities, and gets you wherever you want to go.


About Us

Two wheels. Endless possibilities.

Our Story

The HUBLUV program was started by Alexi and Steve Conine who began their bike-packing adventures in 1999, while living in London without a car. When the Conines moved back to Boston 20 years ago, they wanted to continue biking on an everyday basis, but realized the city lacked access to connected trail systems. They began working with organizations within the biking ecosystem to change that.

Through the Conine Family Foundation they aim to catalyze progress in building and enjoying the biking infrastructure in Boston through philanthropy and by creating the HUBLUV initiative that funds programs in four key areas and celebrates biking for all.
