I began my affair with ALC as a roadie for ALC6, helping to feed both riders and roadies alike. Moving to the West Coast has been a physical renaissance for me, seeing me play softball and take up road biking for a few of the firsts in my 37 years. My bike, Clyde, is the first bike I've owned since I was 15 yrs old and certainly the first one I've paid for on my own. As much as for the personal physical challenge, I am riding with the hope that renewed energy toward support of those living with HIV/AIDS and continued vigor towards education and research toward prevention and a cure will see the end of this senseless pandemic in my lifetime. I ride with the support of many, MANY amazing individuals such as my family, my boyfriend, friends, co-workers and my pets.

Shawn,

You're the F'in BEST Mister. Thank you so much for riding.

I knew that day at work in that meeting, when you started talking about the ride....you got that glow, I knew you'd get. Then....when you started getting all tear'y telling everyone as much as you could in a language that, for the first week back, in completely unspeakable to those who have not experienced such a "moving" journey. Thanks for keeping that fire burning (besides the saddle sores burning). You'll do GREAT.

Love, Jason & Chris

Hi Shawn,
It was a pleasure to meet you this year via Danny! I think we carried Danny's spirit. It was always a joy to see you on the all our training rides and then on each day of the event!
I am unsure if I will ride again next year but hope to join in on some training rides - how knows, you might see me out there again!
Our flight on Monday was the 10:55 am flight. I looked for you but I bet you got the flight before us.
Hope you are back in SF enjoying our nice weather!
Take care,
Laura
