Why Do I participate in AIDS Lifecycle?
Simple. The disease isn't yet over and the need to help those affected with it is still great.
Why this year? I was going to retire but the need for Roadies and Bike Tech far surpassed that desire so here I am.
The ALC community is like no other. Loving, caring and accepting in every way. Every year for 8 days, we come together in love and pain and in the excitement of another ride, another week of hard work, camaraderie and yes, fun. For one week and one day our world is focused on this event and on one goal and that is to move this small cit of riders and roadies down the California countryside and into Old Angeles.
Won't you join me once again as I try to raise as much as I can for this great cause.
It is THIRTEEN YEARS since I began to support ALC! Amazing! Thank you for joining me again in this cause!
I began this journey with ALC in 2009 when I rode for ALC in ALC 8. Now we call them by the year so its ALC 2022 for me.
Through the years, you have been my strong supporters and because of you I always raise a great deal of money for tis worthy cause. For that I am eternally grateful. Last year we raised 16.8 million dollars and we hope to break that this year. Can you help me make that 17++ million this year?
From June 4th until June 11th over 3,000 Cyclists, Roadies and Virtual Cyclists will be participating in AIDS/LifeCycle, a 545-mile bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles to raise funds for the life-saving services offered by San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center.
This year, I will once again be a ROADIE with the Bike Tech Team doing my part to keep riders riding. It’s a grueling job doing adjustments, changing flats (hundreds of them) and whatever else we can to help riders ride but it’s so worth it helping the riders do their part.
The services provided as a result of this event means the world to those who receive them because they are life saving. And your support means the world to me as well!
We’re working together to make HIV/AIDS a thing of the past but we're also working to help people live with HIV.
