This past June, after living in L.A. for less than a month, I went downtown to watch thousands of riders cross the AIDS/LifeCycle finish line in front of City Hall, marking the completion of their seven-day, 545-mile journey. Some looked exhausted, others looked energized, and many were in tears. I was so inspired - to me it looked like LIVING, and I knew I had to do it. I signed up right there in Grand Park in front of City Hall that afternoon.
545 miles. San Francisco to Los Angeles. On a bike. Sounds kind of insane, and it probably is. It will be an epic journey like nothing I've done before, but the cause, raising funds for the life-saving services offered by San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center, is a beautiful one. I want those impacted by HIV to know that they are loved. I want them to feel empowered and cared for.
If you'd like any more information on the ride, please check out the AIDS/LifeCycle website at https://www.aidslifecycle.org/, and if you have any questions, please just let me know!
The services provided as a result of this event mean the world to those who receive them, and your support means the world to me.
