Welcome to the Plymouth PMC Kids Ride!

Come celebrate with us as we hold our 7th annual Plymouth PMC Kids Ride to raise money for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI).As in the past four years, we will be holding our ride amongst the shady pines of Charge Pond in the DCR Myles Standish State Forest. This is a fantastic opportunity for kids to become involved in their community and to be part of a great cause! 

Commemorate your ride with a party at the finish line with music provided by 105.7 WROR, and featuring the New England Revolution, Police Unit BearCat, YMCA, games, food, arts and crafts, and fantastic raffle items! We're still working on the guest list, so follow us on Facebook to hear the latest news! Lastly, we will have a short ceremony recognizing our riders who have participated for 5 years!

  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.

Local Sponsors
