Rough Riders is a team of Riders and Roadies raising money and awareness in the fight to end HIV/AIDS by participating in AIDS/LifeCycle. Many on the team have completed at least one ALC ride, with the intention of bringing a new rider or roadie back each year they participate.
We ride to help raise unrestricted funds for San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center, allowing these two organizations to provide free or low cost HIV/AIDS care, testing and prevention. We ride to raise awareness to end the stigma surrounding HIV/AIDS. We ride to honor all those who have passed from AIDS-related causes. We ride so that someday, we won't have to.
Support our cause!
