About Braking the Cycle:

Every once in a while, you discover an opportunity that can change your world forever. Every now and again, you get a chance to be welcomed into a new family. And occasionally, you get a chance to make the world a better place by putting yourself on the line. That moment is now. That opportunity is Braking the Cycle.

We are not just another AIDS ride. Over the past eight years, we have built a family that loves and cares for each other year round. We laugh and cry together, we care for you like family, and we're as much fun as the law allows. We think that's why each year, more than two-thirds of our participants return. And together, our hearty little band accomplishes something big: In the past eight years alone, Braking the Cycle has delivered over $2.5 million to support the HIV/AIDS services of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center, while spreading awareness about HIV in communities across 285 miles from Boston to Manhattan. We're a small ride, but we're a big family making a huge impact, and each year we welcome new members into the fold. For more information please visit
