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.

Sooo excited. I just came home and read Day 4, and low-and-behold.... Day 5 pops up a second ago.

So proud of you, Shawn.

Tell them they need to hurry and update their "registration" for next year's ALC ride. I'm totally ready and its killing me to wait to sign up for next year.

Keep up the great job and hang in there, you're almost there. Once you hit Santa Maria, it's all downhill. I'll be in Santa Barbara this Saturday.
