The Charity Treks Charlottesville to DC HIV/AIDS Vaccine Bike Trek 2017. This event will be our 16th trek towards the goal of a world free from HIV/AIDS. 100% of your donations will go directly to fund researchers at UCLA AIDS Institute and the Emory Vaccine Center. Over the course of 4 days and approx. 300 miles we will ride from Downtown Charlottesville, past the University of Virginia and end our ride on the steps of the Jefferson Memorial in Washington DC. This is a fully supported bike ride with breakfast, lunch, and dinner included each day during the ride. We also have stocked pit stops every 12-20 miles.
