A Ride to RememberABOUT THIS EVENT

For 11 years, A Ride to Remember has taken cyclists on a scenic 3-day, 252-mile journey through South Carolina, all to raise funds and awareness for the research, care and support efforts of the Alzheimer's Association. And in 2020, riders took A Ride to Remember to their neighborhoods, trails and homes during the first-ever Virtual Ride Challenge!

For our 13th annual event, we are planning to offer the traditional 3-day Group Ride as well as a Virtual Challenge option—back by popular demand!

*We are excited to move forward with our in-person Group Ride, July 9-11, in addition to the Virtual Challenge! We continue to monitor state and local public health guidelines with your safety in mind. Please stay tuned for additional event details.
