Nick's Boilerplate
From June 5th through June 11th I will ride my bike 545 miles from San Francisco to Los Angeles in AIDS/LifeCycle 10. I've committed to raising more than $3,000 and I need your support. The funds I raise will enable the San Francisco AIDS Foundation in their mission in preventing and testing HIV, and to help those impacted by HIV get the treatment and care they need.

I'm sure you are wondering why on earth I would want to spend a week riding my bike 545 miles when one could do it in a car in 7ish hours. For me it's something that has been sitting in the back on my mind for a long time. I remember watching the film "The Unknown Cyclist" many years ago and thinking how it would be a lot of fun to be on a "epic" bike tour like that.

I consider myself lucky to live a relatively sheltered life in that I don't have any friends or family affected by AIDS. It sounds sort of silly, but my strongest personal connection is the musical RENT. The good news is that by the time this ride is over I'm sure I'll have forged some new friendships and will have a deeper understanding of the AIDS pandemic.
