- Crushed my 1st century ride!!! I went to the 16th Annual Paul Hulse/PosPeds Century on 4/13 and did a whole 104 miles in about 7 hours (of active bike time). We started our day near Magic Mountain at 6:15am, with a 7:30am ride out. Rode 51 mi. out to Ventura and had lunch near the water, and then turned around on a (thankfully) flatter route than we came in. My calves are still sore!
- $2150 raised, $850 to go!
- 150 miles ridden via Peleton, my new favorite thing about work trips (shout out to the Westin Workout rooms)
- riding 1st B2B weekend of 4/6-4/7 (saturday and sunday), HMU if you want to join!
- $1600 raised, trying to hit $3000 (the absolute minimum to ride) by 3/1!
- 425 miles ridden & 12,208 ft. climbed since I started training in September (not including rainy day spin classes)
- Longest Ride: 46.2 miles, climbing Chevy Chase Dr. through La Canada/Pasadena/Glendale
- 2 minor falls, 3 grease stained jerseys, and dozens of cliff bars eaten
June 2nd - June 8th, 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!
What that actually means: every day for 7 days, I'll be riding a bike between 50 - 110 miles.
This is my 3rd year joining the ride and 1st time as a CYCLIST!! After volunteering as a Roadie for the last 2 years, I decided it was finally time to challenge myself. Although I've always enjoyed bike riding, I've never been a serious cyclist. With the inspiration and encouragement from my Team PwC team members and through talking to countless people at ALC last year, I realized that it is totally possible for me to accomplish this physical feat.
Riders must raise a minimum of $3k to participate - that's where I need your help! I joined the ride 2 years ago because I felt frustrated with the political climate and was looking for a way to make an impact on my local community, beyond just voting. The money raised by ALC 2019 will go directly to the Los Angeles LGBTQ and San Francisco AIDS Foundations, which provide so many crucial services to the community, such as education, health services, and funding for research and lobbying efforts.

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.
