Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, AIDS/LifeCycle has been cancelled for 2020 - and 2021. This is devastating to all of us who train, fundraise, and look forward to this very special week every year.
Unfortunately, it's devastating to the beneficiaries of the ride as well, the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center. HIV/AIDS patients need support more than ever, but with no ride, fundraising will be way down this year, and the disease won't be taking the year off. So I am still working toward my modest fundraising goal of $1,000. And offering bike tune-ups in exchange for donations. Suggested donation for a dropoff and pickup is $50, and $80 for a house call (in a hopefully shady spot in your driveway). With the Togetheride program, I'll be riding as well, putting in some big miles in the saddle, when I'm not fixing bikes.
