The SMART Challenge Ride is a three-day charity bike ride that raises funds to support tuition costs for those most in need at Bethlehem Academy, a Catholic school in Faribault, MN.   
The acronym SMART stands for Southern Minnesota Alternating Route Tour.  Each year, the route changes to ride across different areas of Southern Minnesota.  A Challenge Ride, by definition, is a ride where we are not racing against other riders but rather challenging ourselves to complete the route.
For 2016, the ride will take place Thursday, August 11th through Saturday, August 13th.  It will start and end on the front steps of the Bethlehem Academy school.   The total distance will be about 200 miles. 
Aside from your entry fee, there will be a minimum fundraising requirement of $500 due by the day of the ride.  We provide you with a personal online fundraising page to make this process as convenient as possible.

The rider pool for the 5th Annual SMART Challenge Ride (2016) will be limited to the first 30 riders.
