Routes

  • Outer Loop: A big half mile loop starting in front of the Dana Center at St. Anselm College  This loop is for the "big kids" riding on two-wheeled bikes.  
  • Inner Loop: This is for kids riding big-wheels, trikes, bikes with training wheels or just starting out on two wheels.
  • Virtual Rider: Virtual riders are those who would prefer to ride on their own and not in person at the event. Virtual riders who raise $50 or more will receive an official PMC Kids Rides t-shirt and water bottle at the end of June for spring rides or at the end of September for fall rides. Virtual riders have no registration fee or fundraising commitment.

Register to Ride

Parents will need to create an account or log in with an existing account to register their child or family. When creating an account, please enter the parent's information first, as there will be a separate section in registration to enter the child's information.

Under "Event Option" parents will be able to select a route for each child. Riders have a $20 registration fee and a $40 fundraising minimum. Parents will need to sign a waiver and agree to the fundraising commitment in order to complete registration. In-person riders will receive their rider kit at the ride.

Virtual Rider

Parents will be able to select the “Virtual Rider” route if their child will not be riding in person but still wants to support the PMC Kids Rides program. Virtual riders can ride in their own neighborhood on the day of the ride or whenever they'd like! If a virtual rider raises $50 or more, they will receive an official PMC Kids Rides t-shirt and water bottle at the end of June for spring rides and at the end of September for fall rides. 

Once registration is complete for both in-person and virtual riders, parents will receive a confirmation email with information on how to log into their management page to customize donation pages and to track donations.

The PMC strongly recommends that all participants – including riders who are eligible – be vaccinated to attend a PMC Kids Ride.

 

Fundraising

The fundraising minimum for each rider is $40 and is due by September 1.

Riders who go above and beyond with their fundraising will be recognized as Heavy Hitters or Breakaway Fundraisers and will receive a special gift in recognition of their fundraising efforts.

  • Heavy Hitter –$450, riders will receive a PMC Kids Rides canvas pouch and a certificate.
  • Breakaway Fundraiser – $950, riders will receive a PMC Kids Ride duffle bag and a certificate.

Safety

The PMC Kids Rides program follows all public health regulations and guidelines for your area.

General Safety Tips!

  1. Wear a properly-fitted helmet (children are required to wear helmets when participating).
  2. Ride in control – this is not a race.
  3. Hands should remain on handlebars.
  4. Never wear any kind of headphones. You need to hear clearly.
  5. Follow the ride guides and volunteers.
  6. When passing other rides, make sure to yell “on your left!” Never pass riders on the right.
  7. If you need to slow down or stop to cross an intersection or obstacle, yell “slowing” or “stopping” to alert those behind you.

Each PMC Kids Ride has a licensed medical professional on site.

Volunteers

Get the entire family involved and support the event by volunteering! Be a ride marshal, work at a water stop, help distribute snacks and more. Volunteers will need to create an account and then will be able to select the position(s) that they would like.

The PMC strongly recommends that all participants – including riders who are eligible – be vaccinated to attend a PMC Kids Ride.

PMC Pedal Partner Program

The PMC Pedal Partner Program is a wonderful way for riders to connect with a child who has been affected by cancer. PMC Pedal Partners are pediatric oncology patients at the Jimmy Fund Clinic who are paired with PMC Kids Rides or PMC teams.

If you know a child in treatment at the Jimmy Fund who is interested in being a PMC Pedal Partner for a PMC Kids Ride, please contact Fiona Hannafin, PMC Pedal Partner Program Coordinator, at fiona@pmc.org.
