Ride the PMC

Why Ride: Closer by the Mile

The PMC is a fully supported bike-a-thon with food and water stops, mechanical and  medical assistance, lodging and luggage, bike and individual transportation. Whether it’s 25 or 192 miles, every mile pedaled equals funds raised for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s life-saving research and treatment. In 2019, the PMC donated $63 million to Dana-Farber, bringing the PMC's 40-year fundraising total to $717 million.

Cyclists choose one or two days; 12 routes from 25 to 192  miles that cater to all levels of cycling strength and fundraising capacity. The longest route is the two-day, 192-mile ride from Sturbridge to Provincetown, and the shortest is a one-day,  25-mile ride from Babson College to Patriot Place in Foxboro.

You’re here to make a difference. Ride with us to bring the PMC closer by the mile.

PMC 2020 rider registration opens on January 3 to Heavy Hitters, on January 7 to alumni, and on January 10 to everyone. PMC 2020 is August 1 and 2.

The Virtual Ride

Be a part of the PMC. A Virtual Rider is someone who supports the PMC’s mission by fundraising. Virtual Riders have no fundraising commitment and have access to all PMC fundraising tools. As a Virtual Rider, you can ride your own long-distance route, log miles over time, or never get on a bike. As a Virtual Rider, you make a difference because you are committed to raising funds to cure cancer.
