Choose from a two-day, 200 mile ride, our one-time only Anniversary distance 230 miles, or a single-day 100-mile option. The Ride for AIDS Chicago is Test Positive Aware Network's largest fundraiser and aims to raise vital unrestricted funds for TPAN and its Community Partners.
Riders completing 230 or 200 miles depart from the start location Saturday morning, cycling through Illinois, Indiana, and finally along the shores of Lake Michigan to reach YMCA's Camp Eberhart.
While the 200-mile participants are en route, the 100-mile participants will be shuttled with their bikes and gear to Camp Eberhart to ride on Sunday. After arriving at camp, you may opt for lakeside relaxation in the camp's hammock bay, gather with friends at one of the many firepits, or continue your adventure with an aerial ropes course. If the weather cooperates, we'll host a barbecue outdoors.This will be followed by a number of evening of activities for you to choose from. You'll sleep in one of the many cabins,lodges, or treehouses, waking up to an energizing Michigan morning air and a hot breakfast awaiting you in the dining hall.
All Riders will return to Chicago on Sunday, the shaded bicycle paths of northeast Indiana, and then into the city. Upon returning, family and friends will welcome us home at the one-of-a-kind Finale Festival.
In order to participate, Riders are required to make a minimum fundraising commitment of $1,000. In the event you are unable to Ride, due to injury or otherwise, you will still be required to raise a minimum of $500.
To participate as an official Crew member, it is suggested but not required, that you raise $500.
Unlike other rides of this kind, Ride for AIDS Chicago is committed to returning 100% of your pledges to the beneficiaries.
