I took this blurry, backwards picture of myself when I committed to riding in this year's AIDS Lifecycle, a 545-mile, 7-day bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles. My T-shirt reads "The ride doesn't end until AIDS does."
I have long dreamed of doing the Lifecycle. I will train for many hours and cover many miles between now and June 1st. I may even get a hard butt for once in my life!
I invite you to join me on this journey, however you can. Ride with me. Or come to the party in LA when it's over (many family and friends are flying in). Or simply send your good wishes and warm spirit.
More than anything, though, I invite you to SPONSOR MY RIDE, with a 100% tax-deductible donation that goes to two phenomenal organizations delivering AIDS-related services to thousands of people. Anything you can give is appreciated, and it will guarantee you a spot in my heart and head across those 545 beautiful miles.
Read on for the story of my decision to ride. I hope you are moved. Because I am so excited, I can barely stand it!!!!
