Welcome to the
2018 Bedford PMC Kids Ride!

DAY OF RIDE INFORMATION:

Grab your bikes and join over 300 kids from Bedford and surrounding towns to ride in support of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and its Jimmy Fund.  This is Bedford's 14th PMC Kids Ride, and thanks to our riders and sponsors we have raised over $1.1 Million dollars!!  The PMC Kids Ride gives everyone an opportunity to fight back against a disease that takes so much, at so many ages, while simultaneously stressing the importance of raising funds to find a cure for all cancers.  

SCHEDULE FOR THE DAY:
9:00am: On-site registration and all bikers arrive to get in their route corrals.
9:30am: Roads close and opening ceremonies begin
9:45am: Riders head out on their routes!
10am - 1pm: Party with music, food, drinks, activities, raffle, silent auction and more!
ROUTES: 
You choose a route that is right for you!
  • Wally's Way: An obstacle course for tykes on trikes located on the JGMS tennis courts

  • Yawkey Way: A 1/2-mile route around JGMS perfect for kids on training wheel

  • Green Monster: A 3-mile ride through neighborhoods of Bedford for young adventurous riders (no training wheels allowed on this route)

  • Big Papi: A 5-mile ride through neighborhoods of Bedford for more experienced riders

  • Big Papi Slam: A 10-mile ride through trail beds and Bedford neighborhoods for those who want a real challenge

  • Fenway: A 12-mile off-road route that travels the rail bed to Concord and back (must be entering 6th grade)
See route maps for more detail.  Riders will be placed in groups of 10-12 riders with an adult volunteer leader and sweep.  Water stops are set up along the routes and volunteers and police officers will be out on the road to cheer on the riders and keep them safe.  Be sure to print out the route map to practice the route prior to Ride day.  
All riders, including adults, are required to wear a helmet and to bring their cellphones.
FUNDRAISING: 
A lot goes into the Kids Ride program so we can work together to raise funds for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in support of cancer research and cures and the best treatments for cancer patients.  To help us reach this goal, a minimum fundraising amount of $30 per rider is required.  We suggest a fundraising amount of $50 per rider, but many kids raise a lot more than that!  
Riders who raise $300 are considered HEAVY HITTERS and receive a raffle ticket for the exclusive Heavy Hitter Raffle and a chance to win a special prize (last year's prize was an overnight at Great Wolf Lodge).  All PMC heavy hitters also receive an awesome PMC string bag.  
Riders who raise $800+ become BREAKAWAY FUNDRAISERS and will receive a special New Balance PMC backpack. They are also entered into the Heavy Hitters raffle.
