17th Annual Hill Country Ride for AIDS

For 17 years, the Hill Country Ride for AIDS has been cycling through the beautiful hill country around Austin, Texas to raise critical funding for ten local AIDS services providers, including Project Transitions. The HCRA has become the largest HIV/AIDS fundraiser in central Texas and is the 2nd most successful AIDS ride in the country!

We need riders to join our team, Bike Curious.  This is a RIDE not a RACE with distances for every level rider. Whether you choose 13, 27, 43, 65 miles, or the century route, all ages will have the time of their life riding through beautiful scenery and enjoying our famous pitstops along the way. You may also join as a "ghost rider" who will not ride in the race, but will still help fund raise.It's one long party with a finish line and celebration at Krause Springs to honor your accomplishment and the lives it will change.

On Saturday, February 6, 2016, more than 200 Austinites will gather all over town to enjoy fine wine and dining in private homes, followed by a champagne and dessert reception at NEST Modern for Guess Who's Coming to Dinner.

"Guess Who's Coming to Dinner is one of our most delicious and unique fundraisers," said Craig Thibodeau, Executive Director of Project Transitions.
