Bananas, Beer, and Bread. Oh my!

How do you keep 5,300 riders pedaling for two days and 190 miles? Feed them, a lot!

Our 3,000 volunteers grill, slice, and pour all weekend to keep everyone riding smoothly. Eleven water stops are manned along the route, providing Cliff bars, hamburgers, Gatorade, and the PMC favorite, peanut butter sandwiches.

To fuel the riders we rely on generous donations from our sponsors, including Stop & Shop, Cape Cod Potato Chips, Whole Foods, Harpoon Brewery, among many others.

The 32nd annual PMC is presented by the Red Sox Foundation and the New Balance Foundation.
