REGISTER TO RIDE
Choose from one of three routes:
Tot Lot - designed for the smallest of riders. Trikes, big wheels and training wheels are all allowed on this loop which will take place in the parking lot of the Belmont Hill School campus.
Mini Adventure Route - short 1/2 mile loop for riders who are comfortable on two-wheels. This route will be off campus and guided by volunteers. Children must be able to ride on their own without parents. No training wheels allowed.
Challenge Route - a 1.75 mile route for experienced riders who want the challenge of a bigger loop with a couple of hills. This route will also be off campus and guided by volunteers.
***BIKE HELMETS ARE REQUIRED FOR ALL RIDERS AND RIDE MARSHALL VOLUNTEERS
Riders will be in groups of 10-15 and will be accompanied by an adult volunteer/ride marshall on their route. There will also be volunteers along the route to cheer them on and keep them safe. The Belmont Police Department will be on hand to manage the safety of the riders who go off the Belmont Hill Campus. Route maps available. Kids are expected to ride alone, so parents, please consider signing up to volunteer along the routes.
In addition to the registration, all riders are committed to raising $25 that will go directly to Dana Farber Cancer Institute. We suggest a goal of $50 per rider, but many kids raise much more!
Heavy Hitters: Riders who raise $250+ will receive a PMC cinch bag
Breakaway Fundraisers: Riders who raise $750+ will receive a New Balance PMC backpack
