Hey all! Will Cabrera here...
As some of you may know, the past year has been challenging for me personally. Many life changes! All for the better, particularly this addition to my life.
In June 2019, I will be joining over 3,000 men and women, cis and transgendered, in a ride to end HIV/AIDS. I 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.
The services provided by these two organizations as a result of this event mean the world to those who receive them, and your support means the world to ME. OKAAAAAYYY?!?!
We’re working together to make HIV/AIDS a thing of the past. Will you support me by making a donation today?
Please follow me on Instagram @willcab as well as the blog here as I make this journey.
With much gratitude,
My Personal Web Log
I guess I haven't been as good at keeping up on this blog as I had originally intended. YIKES!
It's been a nutty few months. I recently moved, I started a new job and I sent my mom packing to Mexico! Well, she moved on her own accord, but it is wild that she no longer lives in the same country as I do. Just an excuse to go to Mexico!
Anyway, during that time I have been training hard. My teammates and I have been hitting the road every weekend, unless it's raining of course (I'm very delicate). It's been so much fun. My first ride was 27 miles and I was EXHAUSTED and wanted to eat everything in sight! Now, that mileage doesn't even feel worth my time, haha!
A couple weekends ago, I tackled 74 miles! I started cramping the last mile, but I pushed and made it to the end. I did wake up that night with double leg cramps. No bueno!
This has been an incredible journey. Most of you know I sing with the Gay Men's Chorus of LA. I found my tribe with the chorus. Since starting training for this ride and joining Team BOB (boys on bikes), I have expanded my chosen family. They are the main reason I get up early on a weekend day and push my body miles and miles uphill and across the city.
This has been an incredibly fulfilling experience and I can't wait to ride the 545 miles from San Francisco to LA. I'm excited and nervous. I mean, I have to CAMP!!! I hope they have outlets so I can plug in my hair dryer. Just kidding. Kinda.
I hope you are as excited about this journey for me as I am to do the hard work and bike those miles. Please donate to my page. Let's work to end HIV/AIDS.

First training ride!
I went on my first training ride in my life. 28 miles. I fell once, when I was at a complete stop. Just...tipped over. My team captain, Jon Scaggs forced me to ride up to Griffith Observatory.
It was fantastic! I'm so tired, which really surprises me because, as you all know, I get my ass to the gym EVERYDAY. Hungover, sick, whatever and I was still exhausted after this ride. I am so excited to do the this ALC ride in June!!!
Give me money! It's for a good cause!
Lots of love,
