This year the Ride is setting up our Mile of Silence red flags as a public installation in partnership with Pease Park Conservancy. You may ride, walk, or run any of the following maps to experience a very special part of the Hill Country Ride for AIDS. Complete your miles on your own schedule and at your own pace!
On Ride Day, Saturday, April 24th, from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM (CST) there will be an interactive table set up along the Mile of Silence at Pease Park with blank red flags you may dedicate to someone you participate in honor of and place their flag along this special mile. We will also have bottled waters and bananas available while supplies last.
