Donate to AIDS/LifeCycle online Register for AIDS/LifeCycle 7



I decided to participate in AIDS Life Cycle 6 because my brother Chris passed away from AIDs in 1994. I ride to honor him and the many others who have passed from this disease.

Participating in this ride has come to mean more to me than just riding my little bike. It has changed me in ways I never would have expected. I’m a bit more out going now, a bit more sure of myself, a bit more sassy (if you can believe that) and a bit lighter (about 50lbs lighter) than when I started. I really wanted to give back but it seems I’ve gotten more out of this than I’ve given.

congratulations, Annette! sounds like a fabulous start to a great week. have fun, pace yourself, and enjoy the ride!!!


I am so proud of you guys. I thought of you all so much yesterday as I rode the quiet roads of Marin. This was touching to read Annette and brought a proud tear to my eye. A good way to start a Monday morning at work, with the empty seats all around me of my co-workers who are out there on the roads doing a GREAT thing.
Ride on!!
Your co-worker and friend,
