This is my first long distance road bike event, but I’m no stranger to biking. I’ve been an avid biker for most of my life and I’m very excited to be riding for a great cause.
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!
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.
We’re working together to make HIV/AIDS a thing of the past. Will you support me by making a donation today?

Training when it's raining
This last weekend was a rainy one. The waters of the Bay were washing up onto the sidewalks of the Embarcadero, and it was officially too much weather for a road ride. So we decided to hit up Soul Cycle.
Since our training has recently begun and our bikes are new to us and we are still figuring out the fitting, we hadn't really been doing hard rides. We haven't been hitting too many hills, or really pushing ourselves, because we want to work up slowly. That being said, we thought Soul Cycle would be a good way to build the stamina. And it was indeed!
It was an intense and sweaty affair. The most I'd sweat in a while. After the workout, to quote my friend, Paul, people couldn't tell the difference between me and the people walking in from the rain.
I felt tired, but I also felt great! I love the feeling after a good workout. And biking is one of my favorite ways to get it. I'm going to add Soul Cycle into my regiment as I think it's going to be great training for Quad Buster day!!
