Biking enthusiasts don’t stop for the winter season, but the Hubway does. The bikeshare system officially shut down on December 1st. The season ended with a celebratory “Pie Ride” that encouraged riders to return Hubway bikes to City Hall Plaza in exchange for a delicious pie.

With over 140,000 trips in it’s first season, the Hubway already plans to add 300 new bikes to its fleet of 600. The bikeshare program will reopen in the spring of 2012 and branch into Cambridge, Brookline and Somerville.
