PMC Kids Rides are mini bike-a-thons that involve children ages 2 to 15 in the PMC mission by providing them the opportunity to fight cancer just like the adults. From a short obstacle course for tricycles to a 10 mile ride, the PMC Kids Rides vary in terrain and mileage. Some have music, games, and food. Others have silent auction, character appearances, and face painting.
