On Saturday, more than 300 cyclists from Baltimore, Washington, D.C., and the metropolitan area will don their helmets, bike jerseys and gloves and take a two-day, 140-mile journey from Ocean City, Md. to Baltimore City for the 14th Annual Ride for the Feast to benefit Moveable Feast. The event, which will conclude on Sunday, will begin at 24th Street and the Boardwalk in Ocean City and end at Moveable Feast in downtown Baltimore.

Each participant in the ride has pledged to raise a minimum of $1,500, which represents the cost for Moveable Feast to feed one client for an entire year. Ranging in age from 10 to 60 years of age, many have lost friends or family to HIV/AIDS or breast cancer and several riders are HIV positive themselves. Last year, Ride for the Feast raised more than $730,000 and the goal this year is to raise $800,000.

Sponsors cover all event costs, so 100 percent of the proceeds from the ride will directly benefit Moveable Feast. For more information or to sign up to volunteer, call 410-327-3420 or visit www.rideforthefeast.org.
