Welcome to the 5th Annual PMC Reading Kids Ride!


Rain or shine! (We will only cancel in the event of dangerous weather -thunder/lightning).


"Many kids, many bikes, one mission: cure cancer. Kids of all ages (PreK to Grade 8 in Reading's Case) find fun, camaraderie, and inspiration in bringing us closer by the mile to the cure for cancer with donations to the Jimmy Fund at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute”.

In the last 4 years the PMC Reading Kids Ride attracted 600+ riders and raised over $60,000 for Dana Farber Cancer Institute, all while having a fun activity filled day with friends and family!

In our 5th year we hope to attract 200 children, pre-kindergarten through eighth grade, to ride continuous loops beginning at the Wood End Elementary School (heading Roma Lane and continuing right on Sanborn Lane, Left on Lilah Lane, Thomas Lane and Sanborn Lane) as many times as they wish in the allotted time. We will have adult riders and supervisors present on all routes. There will also be a route for "tikes on trikes" set up on the Wood End School from 10:00am to approximately 11:00am.
