Due to Hurricane Irma Recovery Efforts in the Keys the SMART Ride has been postponed until early 2018.
We are so honored to once again be a beneficiary of The SMART Ride. The CDTC Cyclones will be making the two day, 165 mile journey from Miami to Key West for the 6th consecutive year!
Like many things that change us and the world in some way, it starts with a dream, a vision, and an idea. The SMART Ride (Southern Most AIDS/HIV Ride) is no different. It was born out of a dream to make a real and significant difference in the lives of those infected, affected and at risk for HIV/AIDS.
The ride became a reality in November of 2003 with less than 100 riders and about 100 crew raising $169,000. Thirteen years later, over $8.5 million has been distributed throughout Florida, making SMART Ride the 2nd largest AIDS bicycle ride in the country and the only one of its size to give back 100%.
