About the Ride:
The Hill Country Ride for AIDS (HCRA) is the largest fundraiser in central Texas for HIV/AIDS services. A family-friendly and festive bike ride through the beautiful hill country, the Ride raises funds that are given directly to nine local nonprofits who help those in our community affected by HIV/AIDS. In the past 20 years the Ride has raised over $10 million. The Ride has been voted “Best Ride” in Austin for two consecutive years and the “Best Cycling Event” by Austin Fit Magazine and is a beloved community event with an amazingly loyal and supportive following.
The HCRA is a ride, not a race, and all levels are welcomed and celebrated. Participants choose the distance and route that best suits them: 13, 27, 45, 75, or 90+ miles. All routes are fully supported with exciting, helpful volunteers in a fun, party-like atmosphere. Riders can participate individually or start a team with friends, officemates, family members, classmates, or congregations. They can also take part in JoyRides, fundraisers, and social events and rides throughout the ride season to connect to the cause and to one another. For 20 years, the Hill Country Ride for AIDS has developed a community of kindness that fully supports its participants, volunteers, supporters, and the beneficiaries it serves. $680,000 was raised in 2019, and with the continued help of our valued partners, we hope to raise even more for those in need in 2020.
Date: April 25th, 2020
Location: Krause Springs, Spicewood, TX
Approximately 600+ riders, 250+ volunteers, and 100+ guests are expected to attend/participate.
The HCRA is the largest fundraiser for nine local non-profit organizations: AIDS Services of Austin, allgo, Ash+Well CARE Program, Community Action, Friends of the David Powell Health Center, OutYouth, Project Transitions, and Waterloo Counseling Center.
These organizations provide a continuum of critical HIV/AIDS services that include: prevention/education, medical care, housing, hospice, dental care, transportation, food pantry, case management, HIV testing, financial assistance, practical support, substance abuse, and mental health services.
Our goal is to raise $627,000. The Vast majority of funds raised comes from riders and volunteers. First time riders commit to raising at least $250 towards the goal. Each returning rider commits to raising $500. However, the usual average raised by riders is closer to $1,000.
