|The Wellesley Start, which is staged on the Babson College Campus, began in 2000 to accommodate riders looking for a more convenient location and a less grueling ride. Since inception, this has become the fastest growing route option of the PMC. The ride starts with, what seems like a 25 mile descent and finishes with a combination of rolling hills and flats. If you are a novice cyclist you might want to choose the Wellesley start.
Riders from Wellesley may choose to finish in Bourne, Provincetown or Wellesley. There are two finish lines in Provincetown: the Family Finish and The Provincetown Inn. The Family Finish is where you want to end your ride in order to rendezvous quickly with family members. It offers most of the amenities of the Provincetown Inn finish, as well as games and entertainment for children. Riders’ guests are not allowed at the Provincetown Inn.
Whichever route you choose, you
| will enjoy an unbelievable feeling of accomplishment when you cross the finish line! You will have done something to fight cancer. You will have become a PMC fundraiser.
