I am so excited to be participating in Aids LifeCycle with and for my dear friend, Nikolay (to read his story, visit: http://www.tofighthiv.org/site/TR/Events/AIDSLifeCycleCenter?px=3451776&pg=personal&fr_id=2110).
I had never heard of ALC until Nikolay mentioned it with a comment about how he's been wanting to particpate for years. I took that as a sign that we should sign-up (it wasn't...sorry, not sorry). Only after I registered did I realize what I was getting myself into.
In less than 1 week, we will be biking down the California coast from San Francisco to Los Angeles (545 miles!!) with over 3,000 other cyclists and roadies to raise funds for the Los Angeles LGBT Center and San Francisco AIDS Foundation.
Training for this ride has been an absolutely incredible experience. From the start, the whole community has been so welcoming and supportive. Every week, I've learned (and continue to learn) so much from all of the stories, generosity, and love this community has to share. I am so grateful to be riding alongside all of them next week.
And for that, I need your help! Will you support me by making a donation today? As a cyclist, my goal is to raise $5,000. Any donation (nothing is too small) will help. Thank you in advance!
