Thank you for joining me in this cause!
June 4th - June 10th, over 3,000 Cyclists, Roadies and Virtual Cyclists 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. This year, I’ll be one of them!
The main reason I'm doing this is so that I can help my friends and others who are living with HIV and AIDS. One other personal reason is so that I can set my mind to training on a challenging task and complete it. Because of living with a learning disability, I didn't know how to read or write until I was 39. Now I can be much more independent, such as going online to read about how to fix my bike. I've been dealing with drug addiction since June of 1996 and have found a new life in recovery. I went to school to be a mechanic and have been at the same shop for going on 13 years, doing cylinder head work. I have a passionate enthusiasm for frogs. I'm a father of ten: 6 Argentina horned frogs, 1 white-lipped tree frog, 1 turquoise dumpy tree frog, and 2 green dumpy tree frogs. I also have 20 frog tattoos. Before I got into bike riding, I was in an outlaw soap box racer gang, called the San Fernando Valley Soap Box Federation. Due to that, I could get into Hot Rod Magazine before my boss did!
Thank you for showing your support to help me towards my goal!
