Donate to AIDS/LifeCycle online Send a message of support to a participant on ALC7



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.

I can just imagine how stunning that ocean must have been after 4 long days on the road!!!

I am so proud that you have continued to push forward every inch of the way! You are doing so well and truly helping the cause!!

You tell Jesus and the Kneecaps to behave. But remember, if you were the glass-eyed Karens, the view of the Ocean would've been half as nice.


See the hooker pedal!
