A Sunday bike ride with 5700 of my closest friends

Pmc-badgeI rode in the Pan Mass Challenge this past weekend, and surprised myself by riding faster than expected. I did not ride Saturday (it rained all day; my injury and lack of training really paid off ...), but Sunday was a wonderfully cool day for a ride with just a few sprinkles. The weather and the adrenaline helped me out. Thank you to everyone who has supported my ride and the Pan Mass Challenge. We're working to raise $40 million this year to add to the $414 million raised to date by the PMC for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute's Jimmy Fund. There is still time to whip out your credit card (or those appreciated securities) and join in -- on my PMC profile (offer ends October 1).

Check out the Storify of my #PMC2014 ride after the jump.

Please Sponsor My Ride in the 2014 Pan Mass Challenge

Well, folks, it’s that time again: The Pan Mass Challenge is coming up this weekend -- the first weekend of August, as always -- and this will be my eleventh year as part of the PMC. Every year, riders along the 2-day, 200-mile route are part of a village on wheels that comes together to fight cancer. The 5000+ riders, and the volunteer bike mechanics, massage therapists, folks who prepare and serve food and drink, folks who come out in droves to cheer us on, and say “Thanks for riding,” all join together in support of a cause.  We need your help to support this cause -- the Jimmy Fund at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. 

 

Thanks in large part to the generosity of PMC corporate sponsors, 100% of every dollar you donate goes straight to the Dana Farber – no overhead comes out of your donation, so it can go straight to work supporting the Dana Farber’s cancer research and patient care missions.

Another Pan Mass Challenge Enters the History Books

Pmc-badgeThis past weekend's weather was perfect for riding, and the company was perfect too: 5500 like-minded cyclists, with thousands more volunteering their time and effort to keep us fed, hydrated and happy, and thousands more beyond that all-important group, lining the roads from Sturbridge to Provincetown -- cheering, thanking, blowing bubbles, making noise, passing out water bottles and orange sections, dressing up in a lobster suit, playing bagpipes, whatever it takes -- to keep us moving, getting "Closer By the Mile."

Pan Mass Challenge 2013 - Please join me in the fight to lick cancer

Pmc-badgeIf it's the first weekend in August, then my 5,000 closest friends and I are biking 200 miles in the Pan Mass Challenge.

We're riding to lick cancer.

This scourge is everywhere.

We ride for for everyone, everywhere, touched by cancer. 

It’s that time again – the Pan Mass Challenge is coming up the first weekend of August, and this will be my tenth year as part of the PMC. Every August, riders along the 2-day, 200-mile route are part of a village on wheels that comes together each year to fight cancer.  The 5000+ riders, and the volunteer bike mechanics, massage therapists, folks who prepare and serve food and drink, folks who come out in droves to cheer us on, and say “Thanks for riding,” all join together in support of a cause.  We need your help to support this cause -- the Jimmy Fund at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
