PMC 2020 Ride

The Pan-Mass Challenge is an annual bike-a-thon that raises more money for charity than any other single event in the US. 100% of rider-raised dollars are donated to the world-renowned Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (Massachusetts) for cancer research and treatment.

Instead of riding the traditional routes that span dozens of towns across Massachusetts, this year’s PMC participants will ride or show their support through individual activities – on or off the bike. The goal is to raise $41 million for Dana-Farber,

A 60-minute group ride kicks off everyone’s efforts on Zwift, and will be streamed on and the PMC’s Facebook page. Those interested in participating can register here, however, no advance sign-up is required to participate.

Group ride participants will include six-time US National Cyclocross Champion Tim Johnson and his special guest, Emma White! Emma is a UCI World Track Champion, a member of the 2020 US Olympic Long Team, and a competitor in the first-ever Virtual Tour de France.

I saw that on the Companion app and unfortunately thought it was an editing error. Maybe next time.

Can you release this article a little earlier each week? Here in Australia we don’t see it until waking up Saturday morning, so it leaves no time to plan for Saturday morning events.

I went LEQPxCDC Ventoux Badge Hunter Ride this morning. And to date, this is the best group ride I’ve experienced (sorry for the capital letters, not sure why it’s happening, it’s off on my keyboard)
