From June 2-8, 2013, I'm bicycling in AIDS/LifeCycle (ALC 12). It's a 7-day, 545-mile bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles to make a world of difference in the lives of people living with HIV and AIDS.

I had always wanted to do the AIDS lifecycle ride, not really because of the charites it helps support, but for the challenge of riding from SF to LA in a week. 

Last year, I got to experience a piece of the ALC ride by taking the train up to Ventura and riding the last leg of ALC 11 with my friend Doug. The evening before the ride, I hung out at the campgound and particiapted in some of the evening events, including a candlelight vigil on the beach. During the ride the next day, I rode with the most fun loving, courteous and downright awesome group of 3000 cyclists. It was really like one big family. After the ride, I had such a great time that i signed up for ALC 12 right on the spot! Riding my bike for a week with some cool people? Sign me up.

Then I stayed for the closing ceremony and it was there where I learned some of the amazing ways the ALC charities help people in need. During the ceremony, one of the people I rode and hung out with for a bit during the day got up on stage and gave a speech. He was afraid to get tested and because he wasn't being treated, he developed full-blown AIDS. He told his story of how he went from making a 6 figure income to having nothing; how he was near death and how the groups ALC supports got him treatment, got him back on his feet and how he managed to complete the bike ride from SF to LA. His story brought a tear to my eye.

I'd like to raise over $10,000 so please help me support AIDS/LifeCycle by giving what you can. I truly appreciate your support.
