Ride of Love

Saturday, September 25, 2021
Oak Mountain State Park

The Ride of Love (ROL) is a very special cycling event that raises funds for Smile-A-Mile. Over the years, the Ride of Love has grown to be much more than a fundraising event. It’s a tradition and part of our programming. Traditionally cyclists stay together as a group throughout the entire ride, pedaling more than 150 miles to ride into On-Therapy Family Camp at Lake Martin to be greeted by cheering children and families.

For 2021, the ROL will take place at Oak Mountain State Park in conjunction with our Smile-A-Mile family day. Cyclists will ride along the newly renovated bike path within the park and will determine their own pace, distance and finish time. We are also offering a virtual option for those who prefer to ride on their own at another location but still want to raise funds for Smile-A-Mile.
