Pan-Mass Challenge

Today more than 600 cyclists pedaled across the finish line at Babson College in Wellesley. Mother Nature was tough on the riders this morning, but the rain did little to dampen their spirits or their reasons for riding. Close behind them in ponchos were 300 volunteers who ensured the safety and refueling of the cyclists. Towels were on the ready and the sounds of cowbells and cheers filled the air as each new group of riders came through.

The 32nd annual Pan-Massachusetts Challenge kicked off in Sturbridge and Wellesley this morning, as some 5,300 descended on the streets of Massachusetts. In Sturbridge, more than 2,700 riders left the Sturbridge Host Hotel at sunrise, led by PMC founder and Executive Director Billy Starr, 7 time Tour de France winner and cancer survivor Lance Armstrong, and Massachusetts Senators John Kerry and Scott Brown.

How do you keep 5,300 riders pedaling for two days and 190 miles? Feed them, a lot!

Our 3,000 volunteers grill, slice, and pour all weekend to keep everyone riding smoothly. Eleven water stops are manned along the route, providing Cliff bars, hamburgers, Gatorade, and the PMC favorite, peanut butter sandwiches.
