While the PMC couldn’t be more serious in its mission to raise crucial funds for cancer research at Dana-Farber, the event itself is a lot of fun.
The camaraderie shared by 5,100 cyclists, 3,100 volunteers, and thousands of supporters is among the PMC’s greatest attributes.
But let’s be real, we know it’s actually the refueling stations that keep us pedaling 190 miles. Carb-loading foods and protein power help send cyclists up every hill.
All the food and drinks on PMC weekend are donated thanks to generous sponsors including Cape Cod Potato Chips, Harpoon Brewery, Stop & Shop and Whole Foods, among many others.
Here’s the deal on PMC weekend meals. PMCers consume:
14,000 bags of trail mix
7,000 Cliff bars
6,800 slices of pizza
3,000 lbs of chicken
1,600 loaves of bread
1,400 lbs. of pasta
1,300 lbs. of peanut butter
500 lbs. of sliced turkey
500 lbs. of sliced ham
160 kegs of beer
