Pedaling for Payson Join us for our Pedaling for Payson kick-off event. When you participate in our annual Pedaling for Payson cycling benefit you are making a difference in the lives of community members battling cancer, all while riding one of our scenic routes — ranging from 16 to 100 miles — or our fun, adventurous mountain bike ride. This special fundraising event is held annually in September. The 2017 event is scheduled for September 16, 2017. Your registration fee, or charitable gift to this event, supports the Gene Gillis Fund at Concord Hospital Payson Center for Cancer Care. In 2016, the event raised more than $195,000 to provide cancer patients with gas and grocery cards, as well as to help cover out-of-pocket expenses associated with their cancer treatment. Choose from four scenic routes. A 16 mile (beginner) a 30 mile, a 51 mile and, new this year, a 100 mile century ride. Back by popular demand is a fun, adventurous mountain bike ride that includes a rest stop at Henniker Brewing Company. After your ride enjoy delicious BBQ and live music. Buy raffle tickets for the chance to win a FX road bike donated by S&W Sports and valued at $550.
