2024 PMC WEEKEND 8/2-8/4

About the Rockets

Team Riverside Rockets was formed in 2012 by a group of cyclists with the common belief that by uniting our passion for cycling, our various fundraising abilities, and our desire to have fun doing both, that we can make a difference in the fight against cancer.

Each one of our team members has a story. Whether it’s the loss of a parent, a friend, or a loved on, each one of us has been touched in some way by cancer. We’ve come together as a team because we realize that together we can have a bigger voice. Together we can make an impact. Together we ride our bikes to raise money, because cancer sucks!

On August 3rd and 4th, Team Riverside Rockets will be participating in the Pan Mass Challenge (PMC). This two day 198 mile bike ride from Sturbridge to Provincetown raises money for life saving cancer research at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.

We are asking for your help. Ride with us, sponsor us, train with us. Help us make a difference in the fight against cancer!

About #optoutside

A relative of one of our employees created the #optoutside campaign years ago and we're still observing the day!

Every Black Friday we close the shops, employees are paid and we #optoutside to do what we love; ride our bikes. 

Come join us this year! Friday, November 24th 10AM at the Newburyport shop.

More about Riverside Cycle and #OptOutside- Riverside Cycle is committed to the idea of opting outside on Black Friday this year. We believe that riding our bikes outside makes our lives better. That’s why this November 27, we’re closing both locations and paying our employees to ride outside. We welcome the community to join us outside!

Bike Helmets

Safety first, fun second. Look, it’s actually pretty safe out there, but you never know what’s around the next bend. Modern helmets are more protective and comfortable than ever and are styled to fit every rider’s personal preferences.
