Join us for the 10th Annual SMART Ride Challenge!!
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 grade 6-12 school in Faribault, MN.  Since the first ride in 2012, this event has raised over $420,000 for our Bethlehem Academy students!
