February 13, 2007  |  

Riders are invited to sign up now for the fourth annual “Ride4AIDS,” a one-day HIV/AIDS benefit bike ride along San Diego’s scenic waterfront, which will be held Sunday, April 1A.  Proceeds from the ride will go to the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) School of Medicine’s AIDS Research Institute (ARI) and to Being Alive San Diego, a non-profit support and service organization for people living with HIV/AIDS.

Participants are offered three options with three different starting times:

The 10-mile flat route starts at 9 a.m. from Spanish Landing and Harbor Island to Seaport Village and back.

The 25-mile route, starting at 8 a.m., includes the 10-mile route with the addition of a hilly bike loop up to the Cabrillo National Monument and back.

The 50-mile route, starting at 7 a.m., includes mixed terrain as cyclists travel to Cabrillo National Monument, Mission Bay, up to the UCSD/Torrey Pines area and back.

A 10-mile time trial is included in the 25- and 50-mile rides, or can be ridden as a single event.

Fees for the bike ride are $25 for 10 miles, $30 for 25 miles, and $35 for 50 miles; $10 less for riders age 8 to 17.  The fee for participation in the 10-mile time trial portion only is $25.

Registration information is available at or by calling 619-291-1400.

The UCSD AIDS Research Institute
