The ride, scheduled to to begin June 19 in Raleigh, N.C., and end in Washington, D.C., on June 22, is replacing the Washington, D.C., AIDSRide run by Pallotta TeamWorks for seven years, after "dismal" returns from this year's ride "put a severe dent in the budget" of Food & Friends (Morello, Washington Post, 9/22).
