|The Pan-Massachusetts Challenge offers a menu of route options - with varying total mileages and time commitments - which cater to your level of cycling and your availability.
The original first day route, Sturbridge to Bourne, is the longest and most difficult. The first 50 miles are hilly. The Wellesley to Bourne route is shorter and fairly flat. The Wellesley start and finish are staged on the Babson College Campus. If you are a novice cyclist you might want to choose the Wellesley start. 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 - Bourne, Wellesley, or Provincetown - 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.
