Join hundreds of riders from all over new England as they pedal their way through Katelynn's Ride. This family cycling event, including riders of all ages, continues its tradition of going the distance for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Held in memory of 11-year old Katelynn Battista, who lost her battle with cancer in 1997, the ride starts and ends at Hampshire College in Amherst, Mass. Katelynn's Ride falls under the umbrella of the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge (PMC) and offers four different route options ranging from 10 to 100 miles. A post-ride celebration, complete with a barbecue and live entertainment, follows the ride. Registration begins March 1st.
