I'm Riding to End AIDS
From May 31st through June 6th, I should have been again riding in AIDS/LifeCycle 2020, which should have been my 14th ride down the coast. As you most likely already know AIDS/LifeCycle is a seven-day ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles (canceled this year due to COVID-19), to support the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and to make a world of difference in the lives of people living with HIV and AIDS and to put an end to this disease.
So many of you have helped in the last 16 years, not only for thirteen going on fourteen Rides, but also Seismic Challenge 2.0 in 2009, and six Double Bay Doubles. You've helped me raise way over $100,000 for the San Francisco AIDS Foundation.
This year, I am honored to also be raising money for David Phillips, who has decided to retire from the Ride, after an eleven year run. We first met when he joined one of the 2009 Hollister Hills ALC training rides I led. He rode in seven rides and roadied four. And his donors have contributed nearly $ 3,000 of the over $8,000 raised so far.
And so we are asking for your help once again, I have committed to raising at least $10,000. Help me support AIDS/LifeCycle and the San Francisco AIDS Foundation by giving what you can. We'll keep riding (virtually or otherwise) until AIDS and HIV are a thing of the past.

"To ride a bicycle properly is very much like a love affair; chiefly it is a matter of faith. Believe you can do it and the thing is done; doubt, and for the life of you, you cannot."
