The 2005 Pan-Massachusetts Challenge:


 days (August 6th and 7th)
 for cancer research and treatment

This was my second year, my brother's fourth year, riding in memory of our sister, Arlene, who died from breast cancer in April, 2002. After you enjoy these memories from this year's ride, check out the PMC website at
Donations can be made on-line at any time throughout the year (eGift ID# PS0099).

6:00 AM Saturday at the start in Sturbridge, MA

  Bob with one of the Dana Farber Cancer Institute "Pedal Partners" at the lunch stop
  65 miles behind us, 57 to go before we reach Bourne.









5 miles to Bourne, Bob's tire pump comes loose and rips off his gears. PMC volunteer mechanics had the bike repaired for Sunday's ride.   Jack developed leukemia when he was two. His sign says it all. The survival rate, once 10%, is now better than 80%.
  177 miles behind us, with 15 miles to Provincetown, we stop to rest on the ice sofa.




Every year these two "over the hill cheerleaders" come out to cheer us on half-way up the last l-o-n-g hill on Sunday's route.   Provincetown -- 192 miles -- sweet success!

  Guess which family member just bought a hybrid bike to train for next year's PMC? No, not my sister. My 92 year old Dad.
