Braking the Cycle (BTC) is an annual AIDS bicycle ride in support of the HIV/AIDS services of the Manhattan LGBT Community Center. For 2009 BTC will span three days (Sept. 11-13) and 275 miles – from Boston to NYC.
Since 2003, BTC has delivered $1.8 million to fund the HIV/AIDS services of the LGBT Center.
Our friend, Mika De Roo (right), rode all 275 miles of BTC 2008, from Gettysburg to New York; she had never completed a bike ride of more than 85 miles prior to that summer. She also raised nearly $12,500 from over 140 individuals.
