We work towards creating a world where HIV transmission is rare and those who are HIV+ lead healthy lives.

What is PrEP?

AIDS Ride for Life

September 7, 2024
Registration Opens April 1st, 2024! 

About the Ride
Cyclists from all over gather at Stewart Park in Ithaca NY to Ride around Cayuga Lake while fully supported by a contingent of volunteers at the seven pitstops placed strategically around the lake! Riders will also be assisted by vehicle safety and gear support, bike repair techs, a lunch pitstop at the halfway point, and a great celebration to follow at the finish line! You can also register for smaller routes instead of the 90 or 100 miles around the lake, we have smaller options ranging between 14 to 42 miles that begin at specific pitstops and require a short bus ride from Stewart Park.

Registering for the Ride starts at $25 when registration opens on April 1st, 2024 and will periodically increase as the event gets closer, this fee goes towards Rider amenities and event costs. Additionally, we ask all riders that are 22 and older to fundraise $200 in order to participate on Ride day, younger riders (21 and under) are asked to fundraise a minimum of $100; all money raised by our Riders goes back to STAP to fill the gaps in the funding required to serve folks living with HIV/AIDS, others with two or more chronic illnesses, people who are LGBTQ+ Youth at Identity Youth Center, or Syringe Exchange participants. All registered riders will get their own fundraising page as well as some tools to help them fundraise including the ability to create their own fundraising events, the ability to text their donors thank you, livestream fundraising, and more!
