About 2017 Hill Country Ride for AIDS

Welcome to #HCRA2017, the 18th anniversary of the largest fundraiser in central Texas for HIV and AIDS services!

A family-friendly and festive bike ride through the beautiful hill country, the Ride raises funds that are given directly to ten local nonprofits who help those in our community affected by HIV/AIDS. In the past 17 years the Ride has raised over $8 million. The Ride has been voted "Best Ride" in Austin for two consecutive years and is a beloved community event with an amazingly loyal, supportive community following.

The HCRA is a ride not a race, and all levels are welcomed and celebrated. Participants choose the distance that best suites them: 13, 26, 46, 65, or 90+ miles. All routes are fully supported with exciting, helpful volunteers in a fun, party-like atmosphere. JoyRides, fundraisers and socials throughout the ride season connect participants to the cause and one another. Riders participate individually or start a team with friends, officemates, family members, classmates, or congregations.

New this year!!

The main reason the HCRA has been able to raise more than $8,000,000 for local AIDS services agencies is YOU, our riders!

We couldn't do this without you! To instill confidence and encourage more riders to join this community, we are lowering the minimum fundraising goal for first-time riders to only $250! All other riders commit to raising $500, but we all know most riders will raise an average of close to $1,000!

It's sooooo much easier than you think. Our new website has great tools to help! Or reach out to us directly, and we'll work with you to come up with fun ways to engage your friends and family. We want you to have a blast...you can do it!
