Why should you strap on your helmet and pedal down to Hamburger Mary’s this Sunday, Sept. 13 for the 11th Annual AIDS Bicycle Cruise? Let’s count the reasons.

  1. You’ll be getting in a workout. Choose your route option (cruise distances are five, 10 or 15 miles) and then work up an afternoon sweat. A ride through KC is sure to be way more fun than another gym trip spent on the stationary bike.
  2. All the money raised stays in Kansas City to support the 5,700 men, women and children living with HIV/AIDS through organizations including the Kansas City CARE Clinic, Good Samaritan Project, Save, Inc. and Hope Care Center. Registration is $40 now and $45 onsite during last minute registration at 11 a.m. Ask friends, family and coworkers to donate too.
  3. It’s one heck of a good time. Depending on which route you choose, you can enjoy food and drinks at up to seven ports of call (participating venues include Hamburger Mary’s, Barrel 31, KC Bier Co., Ragazza, Blue Grotto, Crow’s Coffee and more) depending on which route your ride. Plus there’s a post-ride finish line party with food, drinks, fun and festivities, including prizes for top fundraisers and a raffle. Want to support the cruise’s mission without putting the pedal to the metal? You can attend the after-party for $20.
