Welcome to the Easton PMC Kids Ride!

Thank you for all you do to help to bring us closer to finding cures for all cancers by raising funds for research and treatment!

All riders, volunteers, schools, and town supporters and community sponsors are essential to the success of the PMC Kids Ride! In 2019, our community of 350+ riders and 100+ volunteers and supporters raised $52,000! A gift of hope! With your help, we will meet Easton PMC Kids Ride’s 2020 goal of raising $60,000 to benefit the work of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Jimmy Fund. 100 percent of rider-raised dollars benefit research, treatment and care for children and families impacted by cancer.

Routes

Choose one of three (3) bike courses based on child’s age and ability. Check out the Route Map for more information as well!

Please be sure to register for the appropriate route or Virtual Rider category. 

  • Droukas Wonder Lot – A contained course in FRONT of Parkview in the front parking lot for anyone 5 years old and younger, and all those on tricycles, balance bikes, scooters, big wheels, and those needing support with their training wheels. Parents are allowed on this course to support their riders.
    ALL RIDERS WHO ARE 5 YEARS OLD AND YOUNGER MUST BE IN THIS LOT FOR SAFETY REASONS. PLEASE REGISTER THEM ACCORDINGLY TO HELP US HAVE A SAFE RIDE FOR ALL RIDERS.
  • Big Kid Loop – Older students on 2 wheels and 2 wheels with training wheels will ride up Spooner Street, taking a right through Middle School parking lot, circling around the lot and coming down Spooner Street, turning right into the drop off loop in front of Parkview and coming out of the frontloop and going to the left back up Spooner towards the Middle School. They may repeat loop as many times in an hour as they like. Must be 6 years or older and only traditional bikes with wheels and pedals are allowed. Parents are not allowed on this course.
  • Advanced Loop – For older, more advanced riders, who will start in the same location as the big kid loop, but continue up the access road and take a left in between the middle school and R/O, and a left down the bike path, rejoining riders down Spooner St., and repeating as many times in an hour as they like. Parents are not allowed on this course.

Virtual Rider – This category is for riders who would still like to participate but cannot physically be at the ride. These riders may ride on their own time and at their own pace. These riders may also have a rider bag including t-shirt. VIRTUAL RIDER CATEGORY IS AVAILABLE FOR YOUNG RIDERS WHO WOULD LIKE TO PARTICIPATE BUT CANNOT PHYSICALLY BE AT THE RIDE.
