That's right, folks. I have committed to riding 545 miles over one week in the AIDS/LifeCycle. The ride kicks off on June 1st. I've long dreamed of doing this ride, and 2008 is the year. My goal is to raise $10,000, and I am confident that I can achieve it... with a little help from my friends.
My ride is in honor of 10 individuals or groups who have inspired me to take this challenge. I will tell you about each of them in the coming days. If you're ready to get started and sponsor me, you can do it here. I am hoping for $100 as a minimum donation, but I encourage you to donate more if you possibly can.
Before I sign off, you're probably wondering who these two hunks are, peering out over their sunglasses or under their baseball caps. Hunk Left is my friend Peter, who is the head of communications for the San Francisco AIDS Foundation. Peter will be riding this year. Hunk Right is my friend John, who lives in NYC and is my official cycle buddy.
There you have it. AIDS Life/Cycle 2008. Great cause. Great friends. And great beefcake to boot. :-)
