Ride for AIDS Chicago is a two-day, 200-mile, bicycling event produced by Test Positive Aware Network and designed to raise needed monies for TPAN and Community Partners.
The ride leaves on Saturday morning at 6:45 (Rider Registration is 5:30-6:15 a.m.) on the journey into Wisconsin, along the shores of Lake Geneva and then into our camp on Green Lake, part of the Lauderdale lakes chain. We'll start off from the city and soon after find a route of shaded bike paths and country roads.
After arriving at camp, you may opt for a refreshing hot shower or a cool dip in the lake. Later, you'll enjoy a delicious hot meal. This will be followed by an evening of star-gazing or making s’mores at the campfire. You'll sleep in one of the many cabins, waking up to a crisp Wisconsin morning while a hot breakfast awaits you in the dining hall.
Riders will return to Chicago on Sunday following the winding roads of southeast Wisconsin and shaded bicycle paths of northeast Illinois and then into the city. Upon returning, family and friends will welcome us home at a joyous closing ceremony.
Riders are required to raise a minimum of $1,000 and Crew Members are encouraged to raise $500, but they are not required to.
Unlike other rides of this kind, Ride for AIDS Chicago is committed to returning 100% of your pledges to the beneficiaries. We are a grassroots event, committed to keeping costs as low as possible. Your registration fee, along with corporate sponsorship dollars help offset the cost of producing the ride.
