PMC Weekend!

The first weekend is August is becoming known by the name of the famous race for a cancer cure, the Pan Mass Challenge – PMC Weekend. We actually have one of the bikers staying here at Chez Sven with friends and family. She rode her bike from Wellesley to Bourne, one of the options in this strenuous two-day race. 5050 riders took part in the effort to reach this year's goal of twenty-seven million dollars for cancer research at Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston. The majority of the riders started in Sturbridge and spent one night in Bourne, prior to riding out to P-town. The helicopters swirled over our road at 8:45 this morning. Whooping and hollering began a few minutes later as people, gathered on either side of the intersection with Old King's Highway, cheered on the first bikers to descend Long Pond Rd.
