My first multiday AIDS ride was in 2000 from Boston to New York - 3 days, 275 miles. It seemed overwhelming at the time. Over the next 7 years I participated in multiple 5 day rides in New York and New England. I've wanted to ride the AIDS/LifeCycle since moving to San Francisco in 2015, 7 days and 545 miles, but was sidelined by injuries. 2018 was a year of repair (2 surgeries on my right leg and 1 surgery on my wrist) and healing. I’m riding this year for 2 reasons. First, after all this time has passed since my last major ride, along with injuries and surgeries, I want to challenge myself and prove that my body (and mind) are still up to the task. More important, the beneficiaries of the ride are providing amazing services to people living with HIV/AIDS and members of the LGBTQ communities.
June 2nd - June 8th, 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. For more information on the beneficiaries please go to the following page: https://www.aidslifecycle.org/why-we-ride/the-beneficiaries/.
We’re working together to make HIV/AIDS a thing of the past. Thanks to everyone who has already made a pledge and helped me reach my fundraising minimum of $3000. Please join me with a donation toward my goal of $5000.
Thanks for your support!
