Little bikers ride in the fun-filled obstacle course called the “Tot Lot.” Riders ages 6 – 10 can participate in the 1 ¼ mile “Campus Adventure Route” loop as much as they want. And the “Road Challenge Route” is a gently sloping off-campus 3 ½ or 7-mile circuit meant for bikers ages 9 – 13.
 PMC Kids Rides give children the opportunity to experience the joy of volunteerism and charitable giving through physical fitness and community spirit. These rides enable children between the ages of 3 and 13 to ride their bikes and solicit sponsors to donate money to cancer research. Money raised through the event goes to the Pan Mass Challenge/Jimmy Fund, the most successful athletic fundraiser in the nation. Kids also have the option to raise funds in the name of a relative or friend fighting cancer or to dedicate their ride to a special person. The PMC Kids Rides program offers children, parents, and neighbors an opportunity to work together to create individual bike-a-thons in neighborhoods, at schools, or in business complexes.
