Team ALCaholics is a fellowship of people who share a common affliction: an addiction to the warm, fuzzy, sweaty feelings that one experiences during a 7-day, 545-mile bicycle ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles known as AIDS/LifeCycle. The term "love bubble," as veteran ALC riders call it, refers to the sense of feeling encapsulated by tremendous positivity, admiration, affection, and respect for fellow riders, roadies, and others involved in the life-changing experience.
During our inaugural year (2015), we set a $100K fundraising goal, and raised $210,871, more than double our original goal. For ALC 2016, we set our fundraising goal at a lofty $250,000, and thanks to the tremendous support and generosity of our donors, we raised over $300,000, bringing our two-year fundraising total to over half a million dollars! In 2017, with a team of 70 cyclists and roadies, we raised over $438,000, bringing our three-year total to $952,000! With three successful seasons under our cycling bibs, we are excited to return to AIDS/LifeCycle 2018 with a larger-than-ever fundraising goal! This year, we are again committed to raising $400,000 in the fight to end HIV/AIDS!
There are no requirements to be an ALCaholic. We have new and experienced riders, young and old riders, and riders from all across the country (and maybe even the world, one day). We support each other, and membership is open to anyone who wants to ride with us.
