SMART Ride, aka Southern Most AIDS/HIV Ride is a two day, 165-mile fully supported journey from Miami to Key West. Our mission is to raise funds, awareness and care for those infected, affected and at risk for HIV and AIDS. Our journey starts on Thursday November 14th with orientation day, everyone gathers, meet new and old friends and prepare for the ride on Friday morning.
Friday morning starts at sun up and it’s off to the Keys 100 miles, a full century, along the way there are fully stocked pitstops offering water, gatorade, peanut butter, bananas, bagels and other goodies. At the end of the day we check into the beautiful Hawks Cay Resort where we bed down for the evening after an incredible meal prepared by Sidecar Kitchen.
The next morning starts with stretching some camaraderie and the last 65 miles of our journey. Along the way you will pass the 7 mile bridge, traverse even more beautiful waterways and a short stop at Baby’s Coffee and we are in Key West and having lunch. From there it’s a 4 mile police escorted parade around the Conch Republic and to closing ceremonies. WE announce how much money you all have collected through your friends, family, co-workers and it’s time to shower and celebrate. WE hope you will make this incredible life changing journey with us, whether it be for the cause, for a personal challenge, to remember someone who has passed or to prove HIV can’t beat. you.
We look forward to seeing you as we Pedal to Paradise.
