Why are you having it at Jimmy's in Herndon?


The Charity

The SMART Ride (Southern Most AIDS/HIV Ride Twenty-Thirteen http://thesmartride.org/ ) is the second largest cycling event of its kind in the country (first place going to the AIDS Life Cycle in California). It is, however, the only cycling event of its size to give 100 percent of its proceeds away (the cost of the ride is handled by corporate sponsorships) .... Let me say that again... 100% of every dollar pledged goes towards HIV/AIDS direct services. This is more than just a "Florida" or a "California" thing... it's an HIV/AIDS thing and this is our East Coast Opportunity to make a difference. The SMART Ride starts in Miami Florida and goes 165 miles over the course of two days and finishes in Key West Florida. This year is The SMART Ride's 10th anniversary and they are trying to raise their most pledges ever ... $1 Million Dollars.

A team has been assembled of your fellow NoVA-CBG cyclists and we are calling ourselves "NoVA Team Casual". Our goal is a lofty one but we are trying to bring $25,000 with us to the ride to help The SMART Ride achieve their $1 million pledge goal. Want to check out our team and how far we are towards our goal?
It is a worthy cause and I'm very proud of the fact that we are going down to Florida to do the ride and represent the VA /DC / MD area.
