Welcome to the Winchester PMC Kids Ride!

It is with the heaviest of hearts that we've had to reinvent this event this year. However, it is the most proudest of hearts that we introduce the 2020 Winchester PMC Kids Ride 6 Day challenge.

Both as our small community and as part of the bigger PMC Kids Ride community, we have made a huge impact for DFCI! We have raised real money that has made a REAl impact on the fight against cancer. And although we are all having to take a break from our typical lives, cancer is NOT taking a break. Friends, family, neighbors, kids that need our help are all continuing to fight cancer and its effects on their bodies and minds. So that means Winchester Kids MUST RIDE ON!

Make the commitment to join us for a 6 day biking challenge June 8-13th because you want to be a part of giving back & you want to fight cancer! Depending on which "route" you chose, you will be committing to riding each day for that amount of time/distance. We know it is not the same as riding "together" at Lynch, but together we can still make a difference. This reinvented 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.

Virtual Route Suggestions

  • Thunder Route: 10 minutes/day or 1/4 mile
  • Sachems Route: 20 minutes/day or 1 mile plus

Register to Ride (Virtual)

Parents will need to create an account or log in with an existing account in order to register their child or family as virtual riders. 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. During registration there is the option to join or create a team, as well as create a family page.

The parent must select "Virtual Rider" as the Event Option.

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.

Safety

Please follow state and local current guidelines for social distancing while biking in your neighborhood. Limit large groups of unrelated bikers. 

General Safety Tips!

  1. Wear a properly-fitted helmet.
  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. When passing, make sure to yell “on your left!”
  6. If you need to slow down or stop to cross an intersection or obstacle, yell “slowing” or “stopping” to alert those behind you.

Sponsorship Opportunities

The Winchester 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.
