Angus McQuilken, 43, is preparing to use his new Trek Domane bike for this weekend’s Pan-Massachusetts Challenge, a ride that will serve as a personal milestone for the Wellesley resident and his family.

When he takes off from Sturbridge on Saturday for the two-day, 192-mile route that ends in Provincetown, he will be celebrating his fifth year free of cancer, and his fifth consecutive ride as a “Living Proof’’ cyclist.

In 2008, when McQuilken was diagnosed with colon cancer, he made it his goal to participate in the PMC to help raise money and awareness for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
