About 2017 Hill Country Ride for AIDS

Curious to see how your favorite rider or team is doing? Click here to see our fundraising leaderboard. Our amazing team of riders and volunteers is what we're really all about.

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 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 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, 65, 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 18 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. $571,000 was raised in 2016, and with the continued help of our valued partners, we hope to raise even more for those in need in 2017.
