The fundraising commitment requires you to personally guarantee the fundraising minimum whether or not you actually participate in the PMC ride. The fundraising deadline is October 1, 2022.

Bring your photo ID and proof of vaccination to check-in to receive your jersey and credentials. You cannot register and ride without identification and proof of vaccination.
*The PMC is following the CDC's vaccination definition: You are “fully vaccinated” against COVID-19 two weeks after you received either A) two (2) doses of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, given 4-8 weeks apart, or B) one (1) dose of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.
Get your bike tuned up before PMC weekend and be sure to carry your own inner tubes and CO2 cartridges or pump.
