Day Six on AIDS/LifeCycle 8 got rained out. The route was closed due to severe weather and all the Cyclists and Roadies were bussed to Camp 6 at San Buenaventura State Beach. Spirits were high and everyone made the best of it. You can see photos of Day Six on Flickr and there's a new video on YouTube. David, Drew and Judy got into camp a little early and wrote in their blogs.
Brian Hodes, multi-year Cyclist and photographer, took individual pictures of the cyclists on Quadbuster. You can find them on his web site, gr8shots.com. Click "View Events" and look for the AIDS/LifeCycle 8 link.
The Cyclists and Roadies get the ALC newsletter every morning in camp with stories about participants and the places we visit on the way to Los Angeles. There's also weather and menus and other helpful information. Here are pdf downloads of all of the issues. Enjoy!
Day Two is a 107 mile ride from Santa Cruz to King City. We have photos of the Day Two, a new video of Day One and two of our bloggers, David and Drew, wrote about their day. It was a long day and Gabo & Stephen and Judy weren't able to post entries to their blogs, but they'll be adding them along with their updates from Day Three.
Brian has uploaded the Orientation Day photos. One ALC veteran described described today as "coming back to camp." For the newbies, it's the first time they get to see the safety video and meet some of the people they'll be with for the next seven days.
