"worth every bit of effort we put in"

On Saturday, about 2,700 bikers began the longest route of the Pan-Mass Challenge, 192-mile Sturbridge to Provincetown, in the pre-dawn fog. They will rest up in Bourne Saturday night before climbing on their bikes again early Sunday morning. 
In all, thousands of cyclists will have traveled through Sutton, Northbridge, Uxbridge, Mendon, Bellingham, Franklin, Wrentham, Plainville, Foxborough and Norfolk by Saturday evening. 
Since 1980, the bike-a-thon has, through the Jimmy Fund, raised $338 million for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston. Last year, the PMC raised $35 million, and this year’s goal is $36 million.
