* Please Note- Gary & Steve have been helping run this rewarding event for 10 years. This will probably be our last year at the helm. We enjoyed it  and  hope others will take over in the future.

Additional rides are on the Updates page.   

A note on rides:  Gracey Manor is the meeting place to ride, but not all rides will have assigned leaders.  So that all may have time to enjoy the activities, we suggest that groups leave [kickstands up] by 9 AM [or earlier] to have afternoon downtime before the evening events.  Arrive 20 minutes before departure time.  Print out rides you want to take beforehand.

Welcome Visitor

Please use or contact Gary at (813) 601-2804 for further information or questions regarding the Smoky Mountain Ride In

Just a clarification on the name and purpose:  We do not want to get involved with insurance or other legal ramifications.  This is just a group of riders coming together, and if it becomes more than that, we will respectfully decline being involved in organizing a future event.  While this event supports a local children's charity, your participation is voluntary.  You are responsible for yourself, and the organizers assume no legal responsibilities.

*A note to entertainers and vendors:  If you are expecting to come here to make big money, this is not your event.  Everything is run by volunteers who receive no compensation.  If you want to volunteer, then contact us and your message will be routed accordingly.
