The Ride of Love 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. 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. This is a life-changing ride that you’ll never forget!


Given the current health mandates issued by the Governor of Alabama and various health agencies, the Smile-A-Mile team and the ride leads for Ride of Love 2020 have decided to cancel the 2020 Ride of Love previously scheduled for August 29th.  This decision was made with the health and safety of the riders and support team as our primary concern.  The Ride of Love is a unique group ride where required social distancing cannot be achieved in a safe manner for riders over the duration of 132 miles and 9 hours together.

We look forward to being able to hold the Ride of Love in 2021, with the start from Smile-A-Mile in Birmingham and finishing at the camp session on Lake Martin. 

Registration fees and current funds raised will be automatically applied to the 2021 event. Emails reminders and updates regarding the 2021 event will be sent to current participants later this year.

We thank you for your friendship and committment to the children and families we serve.
