RIDE with us on November 14th 

At home or on the road join us for the RIDE for Smile Train: Home Edition. Registration is free and fundraising is encouraged through the SMILE perk levels.

This is not your typical virtual event. It’s an opportunity to ride with us from the comforts of your home or community roads.  It’s a commitment to changing the world with each pump of your pedals. And above all, it's a celebration of the power of a smile

How to Join Us

  1. Commit! Register by making an account and launching a fundraising page. Then, invite your friends and family to join you on this journey. 
  2. Donate & Fundraise! There is no required fundraising goal, but we want your miles to be turned into smiles. Email, text, post, and tag - we are here to provide you with tools and ideas on how to fundraise, even in our socially distant climate. Get started early to ensure your SMILE perk items are delivered in time for RIDE day. 
  3. Get Ready! Prepare for the RIDE for Smile Train: Home Edition by taking on the Miles for Smiles Strava Challenge
  4. RIDE! On Saturday, November 14th, join us for an exclusive ZWIFT event or take to your community roads for a route and distance of your choice (stationary bikes are okay too!). Be sure to tune into our LIVE broadcast event at 9:30 am EST for our opening ceremony and commentated Zwift ride.
