The PMC takes over NYC

 An eager bunch of PMC cyclists from New York got up early to show their PMC spirit to the nation.

The perky group of pedalers and volunteers: Susan Fier, Marlo Bakst, Paul Straton, Robert Goodman, Maureen Errity, Claudine Kipp, Ed Gallagher, Brittney Gallagher, Erin Gallagher, Anthony Cook, James Kotarski, who were equipped with caffeine, PMC shirts and a PMC banner, made their way over to the CBS Early Show Plaza at 59th Street and Fifth Avenue to get some air time and spread the message of the 30th annual ride.

They attracted the attention of former Bourne resident and Early Show Weatherman, Lonnie Quinn, who introduced the crowd. The riders gave a quick PMC explanation and talked about raising money to fight cancer.

Later, the PMCers got a lesson in stretching from Early Show anchor Harry Smith who is also a cyclist. (Harry come ride in the PMC!)

“It was great because Harry Smith, during a break, came over to show us (the PMC crowd) some good back stretching exercises and he REALLY demonstrated by taking suit jacket off and getting down on the pavement!” said Susan Fier.

    To the NY contingent: Thanks for what you are doing!
    My sister is riding in memory of our father who passed away last December after a courageous battle against metastatic esophageal cancer. Dana Farber protocol extended his life by many months, for which we are so grateful!
    You will have a beautiful day for a beautiful ride!
    Best wishes,
    Chris Eidem
