Team ALCaholics

Team ALCaholics is a fellowship of people who share a common affliction: an addiction to the warm, fuzzy, sweaty feelings that one experiences during a 7-day, 545-mile bicycle ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles known as AIDS/LifeCycle. The term "love bubble," as veteran ALC participants call it, refers to the sense of feeling encapsulated by tremendous positivity, admiration, affection, and respect for fellow riders, roadies, and others involved in the life-changing experience.

During our inaugural year (2015), we set a $100K fundraising goal, and raised $210,871, more than double our original goal. For ALC 2016, we set our fundraising goal at a lofty $250,000, and thanks to the tremendous support and generosity of our donors, we raised over $300,000, bringing our two-year fundraising total to over half a million dollars! In 2017, with a team of 70 cyclists and roadies, we raised over $438,000! In our five-year history, we've raised $1.65 million! We are more excited than ever to return to AIDS/LifeCycle 2021 with a lofty $350K fundraising goal!

There are no requirements to be an ALCaholic. We have new and experienced participants of all ages from all around the world. As riders and roadies, we come together to support each other in our mission to end HIV/AIDS. See our mission statement and values here:
