Welcome to the Newton PMC Kids Ride!

 The Newton PMC Kids Ride is back and better than ever! Please join for a morning of fun, philanthropy and celebration to support the Pan-Mass Challenge, the Dana Farber and the Jimmy Fund! 

Newton as a community has a strong presence in the adult PMC ride with over 300 registered riders. The PMC Kids Ride complements this as a great way to get kids involved with the PMC and fundraising for a good cause. We’re expecting a morning of fun and excitement and hope you’ll be part of the ride and fun activities, food and entertainment to follow!

Routes

  • One-mile Loop: A one-mile loop has been created around Wells Avenue beginning at the parking lot at 180 Wells Avenue. This option is available for riders on two-wheeled pedal bikes. Riders have the opportunity to do as many laps as they want in the one-hour allotted time. For the safety of all riders, this loop is designed for bicycles only and not for kids on tricycles, scooters, or kids that need adult assistance. There will be several volunteers stationed along the course, and we ask that parents stay off this course for safety reasons. 
  • Tot Loop: Located within the parking lot at 180 Wells Ave, this is the perfect option for our younger crowd and those needing assistance with riding. Kids can take as many loops along this route as they would like.

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. 

Register to Volunteer

To make this a successful event we need lots of volunteers! Teenagers (13+) and adults are welcome to register online as a volunteer. All volunteers will receive an official PMC Kids Rides volunteer t-shirt!

Sponsorship Opportunities

The Newton PMC Kids Rides relies on local sponsors to help keep costs low and so that the PMC can continue to donate 100 percent of every rider-raised dollar directly to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
