Why we ride.

The Smiddy story

His disarming smile, one that rarely left his face even amidst the gravest of circumstances, gave his family and friends a window into the soul of a gentle, kind-hearted and unassuming young man from Home Hill. In 2006, Adam passed away from an aggressive melanoma.

He was just 26 years old, a talented triathlete and respected physiotherapist with the world at his feet.
