I love charity rides. I am in South Florida and just got back from the 24 hours of Booty in Charlotte which was a lot of fun and very well run BTW.
I am looking for anything in the Southeastern US. Preferably in Florida or near it.
Thanks for your help in advance!

Everglades bike club is hosting the Speedway century. I think it's October 17. It's a really well supported ride, lots of fun.

MS150 from Homestead speedway to Key Largo and back. It's a two day event 75 miles each day.

You have to raise a min. 300 bucks. It's a two day event but very very very awesome.

Massages galore and especially if you sign up with one of the riding chapters and stay at whatever hotel that chapter is headquartered. There was
unlimited MGD 64 (not my fave) but what the hell.

SAGs up the wazoo, well stocked rest stops, police escorts and all that. You also do a lap on the race way, so you get on the embankments like the race cars.

The Ride for Ronald (30/Metric Century/Century) is scheduled on September 26, 2010 from 7am to 3 pm. The ride starts at the Ronald McDonald House near the Walt Disney Pavilion at Florida Hospital for Children in Orlando, FL. It will be fully supported by Dave's World Cycle and the Century route runs through the hills of Clermont, up to scenic Mt. Dora and back down to the start point. The Metric Century goes out to Clermont and back, and the 30 mile ride goes to Windemere, FL and back.

The ride benefits the Ronald McDonald House, which offers lodging to more than 1500 children and their families while they are in treatment at the Florida Hospital for Children.

Tour de Cure is a good one for charity.
Mount Dora Bike Fest is not for charity, but it's also cheap and a good ride (36 years running)
MS 150 is probably the biggest charity ride in FL but cost a lot.
Horrible Hundred is another good ride but not for charity.

Thank you everyone! This is exactly what I was looking for. we are putting together our travel plans and hope to hit as many as possible. Again, if anyone reads this that had anything to do withthe 24 hours of booty inCharlotte, JOB WELL DONE! I have done a few different charity rides and that was one of the best organized ones.

Thank you to everyone who has posted a suggestion. Keep them coming!

The cause is great but the ride is not....
