Lodging

PMC 2024 • August 3 & 4

To help make riders' experiences seamless so they can focus on their mission of riding and fundraising for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, the PMC helps coordinate lodging for PMC weekend riders. 

Saturday evening lodging at Mass Maritime Academy (MMA) in Bourne is included in the PMC registration fee for two-day riders.

Friday (Sturbridge and Wellesley) and Sunday (Provincetown) night lodging is not included in the PMC registration fee and is available in limited capacities for an additional charge.

Learn more about all 2024 PMC weekend lodging options below.

Sturbridge

Sturbridge is one of two Saturday starts for PMC weekend. Rider check-in is available Friday afternoon and Saturday morning; most riders choose to arrive in Sturbridge Friday and stay at a hotel in the area.

While registering, riders can request a Sturbridge area hotel. The PMC will place riders in available local hotels, including: 

  • Comfort Inn (Sturbridge)
  • Super 8 (Sturbridge)
  • La Quinta (Sturbridge)
  • Holiday Inn (Sturbridge)
  • Southbridge Conference Center (Southbridge)
  • Old Sturbridge and Reeder Family Lodges
  • Hampton Inn (Auburn)
  • Comfort Inn (Auburn)
  • Economy Lodge (Sturbridge)
  • Days Inn (Sturbridge)

The PMC provides shuttles to and from these hotels on Friday and Saturday so riders can easily get to check-in and the start at the Sturbridge Host Hotel.

After riders request a Sturbridge area hotel, the PMC will contact them before charging their credit card on file for a hotel room. Prices are set by the local hotels, not the PMC.

If you have questions about lodging, please contact Susan Brogan.

Wellesley

Routes start from Babson College in Wellesley on both Saturday and Sunday of PMC weekend. Rider check-in is available Friday afternoon, as well as early Saturday and Sunday morning.

Babson Executive Conference Center

Many riders who start at Babson are local to the area and do not need a hotel room, however, there is a hotel on the Babson campus. These hotel rooms at the Babson Executive Conference Center are for Babson riders only (not guests or family members). Riders should contact the hotel to reserve a room.

Other Hotels

If the Executive Conference Center is full or you would prefer to stay off campus, there are other hotels in the Wellesley area.

Mass Maritime Academy (Bourne)

Lodging at Mass Maritime Academy (MMA) in Bourne is included in the registration fee for two-day riders. All riders starting from Sturbridge or Wellesley end day one (Saturday) at MMA and have the option to sleep on campus.

The registration fee is reduced by $50 if a rider opts to stay off campus.

Dorms

Dorm rooms hold up to four riders (2 or 3 beds plus 1 or 2 mattresses). Room assignments are first come first serve. Bring your own bedding (a pillow and light sleeping bag or sheets).

During registration, riders can select "single gender room" for a single gender dorm room; no selection will put you in mixed gender room. Riders may also request roommates they want to share a room with during registration.

Ship

The ship may be available as a Mass Maritime Academy lodging option, but we will not definitively know the ship's availability until the spring. Dorms, ship, shared space, and tents will all be lodging options, however the ship will be listed as two conditional options: Ship - Dorm If Ship Is Unavailable or Ship Only - Staying Off Campus If Ship Is Unavailable.

Shared Space

Shared space is a communal sleeping space with mattresses in designated male, female, and co-ed sections. Riders will need to bring their own bedding (a pillow and light sleeping bag or sheets) and eye mask, since emergency lighting must remain on overnight for safety reasons.

We ask riders to be courteous of their fellow riders by keeping noise to a minimum and cleaning up after themselves.

Tent

Riders may bring their own tent as part of their luggage. Each rider is responsible for setting up and taking down their own tent. You will need to bring your own bedding (a pillow and light sleeping bag or sheets). 

Use one luggage tag for your bag and one for your tent.

Luggage Tags

Each PMC weekend rider will receive two luggage tags in their PMC weekend credentials. Each rider's luggage (limited to a small bag not exceeding 25 pounds) will be transported from their start to finish location each day of PMC weekend.

For example, if a rider starts at Babson College in Wellesley on Saturday, their luggage will be transported by truck from there to Mass Maritime Academy in Bourne. If they are continuing from Bourne to Provincetown on Sunday, their luggage will also be transported from Bourne to the Provincetown Inn or Provincetown Monument Finish.

Provincetown

There are two finish lines in Provincetown: one at the Provincetown Inn (1 Commercial Street) and one at the Provincetown Monument (28 Winslow Street). A limited number of hotel rooms are available Sunday night at the Provincetown Inn at an additional cost to riders. To book a room, please contact the Provincetown Inn.
