Welcome back Winchester PMC Kids Ride riders! Our RIDE IS ON! What a year it has been since last year’s reimagined ride of 2020. We are grateful that we will again be able to gather in person for a fall ride on October 2 at Lynch Elementary School and its adjacent streets. We have missed you all and are excited to once again join together to pedal to fight cancer!
We continue to ride to both raise cancer awareness, as well as get Winchester and surrounding communities’ students involved in giving back and being active in the community at an early age. Just like the adult ride, 100% of all rider raised dollars will go straight to Dana Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) and be used to support cancer research and current patient and family care. They need our help...let’s continue to help get closer by the mile to better outcomes for cancer patients!
We are so happy to gather again at Lynch Elementary School and the amazingly supportive surrounding neighborhood. Cancer did not take a break for us this year...it hit each of us very deeply and personally the past few months so, along with the Kids PMC Rides community, we are committed to still raising awareness and funds to FIGHT CANCER in a very real way. Let’s join together and register to ride and volunteer! We plan to work closely with all town officials to follow all up to date state guidelines and provide a safe environment for all participants and their families. We have lots of new ideas on fun socially distanced activities to support this year’s ride that we will continue to update you on as the ride day approaches.
This ride remains dedicated to ALL of OUR loved ones whose lives were cut short by cancer and to those who continue to inspire us as they live with or have beaten cancer.

Parents will need to create an account or log in with an existing account in order to register their child or family. When creating an account, please enter the parent's information first as there will be a separate part in registration to enter the child's information.
Under "Event Option" parents will be able to select a route for each child. In-person routes will be listed along with a new "Reimagined" route option. Reimagined rides are not in-person and riders can ride in their own neighborhood on the day of the ride or whenever they'd like! Reimagined riders will receive their rider kit in the mail prior to the ride date. In-person riders will receive their rider kit day of at the ride.
Both in-person and Reimagined 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.
Once registration is complete, parents will receive an email with information on how to log into their management page to customize donation pages and to track donations.
The fundraising minimum for each rider is $40 and is due by October 15, 2021.
Riders who go above and beyond with their fundraising will be recognized Heavy Hitters or Breakaway Fundraisers and will receive a special gift in recognition of their fundraising efforts in the late Fall.
