The Test Positive Aware Network’s (TPAN’s) annual 200-mile bicycle ride will celebrate its 10th anniversary on July 13–14, with more than 300 registered riders participating in the event. The riders will begin after the opening ceremony at the Chandler-Newberger Center on Northwestern University’s campus in Evanston, Ill. The closing ceremony will be held from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, July 14, at Ingraham Park. According to Richard Cordova, TPAN’s director of athletic events, the ride already has raised $560,000, which is much more than the same time last year, and he is confident that this year’s ride will exceed last year’s total of $638,000. The Ride for AIDS Chicago grew out of the defunct Minneapolis to Chicago AIDS Ride. So far, the top fundraising team this year is Team Chicago Urban Riders.
