   Right now, the youth cyclists are out working for their donations by holding lemonade stands, bake sales, car washes and doing yard work. A few have been brave enough to stand in front of their entire school and host an assembly, encouraging their classmates to get involved. PMC Kids Rides vary in course, mileage, and set-up depending on the town, but all the events promise to be fun and inspirational. A post ride party is a staple at every event, offering crafts, games, music, refreshments and more. More than 30 rides are set to take place acrossNew Englandand beyond. See below for a full schedule and visit kids.pmc.org to register. All rides are looking for registrants and many are still in need of volunteers. Ride on!
