Gay Travel for Good: Come join us in the month of May to raise money and awareness for HIV/AIDS service providers. Founded in 2005, NCAC has raised nearly 3 million dollars to support non-profit agencies. Don’t miss the chance to join NorCal AIDS Cycle.

Our 4-day journey will take you through the beautiful Northern California landscape. You’ll share the experience with your fellow participants, realize a goal that you made for yourself months before, build camaraderie, and find friends and family that will last long after the ride ends.

Join us to raise money, make a difference, and experience the rewards! Sign up today and make some new friends along the way.

Highlights:

  • We will be offering various incentives to encourage both Crew and Cyclists to raise more than the minimum amount
  • Make new friends while navigating through the beautiful Northern California
  • Base camp at Gold Country Fairgrounds in Auburn
  • Two route options on day two
  • Enhanced training program leading up to the ride
