Welcome to the Greater Manchester, NH PMC Kids Ride!

The Greater Manchester NH PMC Kids Ride will take place on Sunday, June 2, 2019, from 9 am to 12 pm at Saint Anselm College.  This is the only New Hampshire PMC Kids Ride and we are hoping to have 125+ kids participating, so spread the word to your family and friends!

In 2005, the PMC Kids Rides became an official PMC program as a way to include young cyclists in the Pan-Mass Challenge’s mission of raising money for cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Since then, the PMC Kids Rides program has raised over $9 million, with 100 percent going directly to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Ride to your heart's content on your choice of tracks. Enjoy face painting, balloon animals, bike and helmet decorating, games, WROR as a live DJ, raffles, soft drinks and great snacks, all in the center of the beautiful St. Anselm College campus. It's the perfect family morning, all for a good cause!

We all want to help cure cancer – make the commitment to join us!  The Greater Manchester, NH PMC Kids Ride will bring us "closer by the mile" to a cure!

Safety

  1. Wear a properly-fitted helmet (children and adults must wear helmets if they are riding).
  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, make sure to yell “on your left!”
  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. 

Safety first! All riders must what properly fitting and secured bike helmets. Representatives from Cycles Etc. Bike Shop will be on hand to provide complimentary bike safety checks and handle minor bike repairs. 

Due to the size of the course and the participation expected, only riders will be allowed to have bikes on the day of the event.  Parents will not be able to ride or walk with their children.
