The Monday after the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge is a day of recovery, relaxation and reflection.
Thank you to the 5,100 cyclists, 3,100 volunteers, hundreds of sponsors, and head staff for putting together another memorable PMC weekend.
This afternoon at Babson College in Wellesley, more than 500 cyclists finished day two of the 31st Pan-Massachusetts Challenge by riding either 70 miles back from Bourne or 47-miles as part of the Wellesley-to-Wellesley one day loop.
Situated 18 miles from the day one finish line at Mass Maritime Academy, the pedal partner picnic at the Lakeville water stop is a celebration for riders and young cancer patients and a way for them to connect along the ride. Pedal Partners inspire PMC cyclists, propel their tired legs forward and remind them why they ride.
The PMC pedal partner program connects PMC cyclists with the very children for whom they ride and raise money. Pedal partners range in age from infants to teens. They wait with signs and a smile with their families to cheer on their designated PMC team.
