August 2 - 4, 2002

This year, we set out to ride a "true" Pan-Massachusetts Challenge, showing our increased support for the Jimmy Fund, and its efforts for cancer research and treatment at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Dana-Farber was ranked #4 nationally for cancer care by US News and World Report in July, 2002.


We would start our ride on Friday, August 2 from Canaan, New York, and join the official PMC in Sturbridge to ride on Saturday, August 3 and Sunday, August 4 all the way to Provincetown. We expected the ride to be about 290 miles.


This is our third year riding. In 2000 and 2001, we rode the regular 192 mile PMC route. This year, we wanted to do more. And we did. More than we bargained for. Three days in oppressive heat and humidity. Thunder, lightning and rain on Friday afternoon. 302 miles total. But, for the right cause, you can do anything.




After the finish, ready to go home by any means other than by bike.
