AIDS/Lifecycle | AIDS Ride San Francisco | Tony Eason

AIDS/Lifecycle Cyclist, Tony Eason

At the age of 32, a friend suggested,  “sit in the nude & stare into a mirror.”  So, I did. And after staring (for 10 minutes) at my face, arms, stomach, eyes, feet and legs, I realized the mirror reflection did not match up with the words pouring out of my mouth.

So, I put down the cocaine; stopped hanging out at “The Endup”; quit drowning in vanity; and became a positive addition to humanity by participating in California AIDS Ride #2 in support of the efforts of the San Francisco AIDS Foundation. The 545 mile bike experience changed my life while assisting in relieving the suffering of others.

Presently, 20 years later, I am very “proud” of my personal life changes.  From a cocaine addict to a road cyclist to a yoga teacher to a marathon runner. It all began with that first 545 mile, 7 day bicycle ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles.

One step at a time .. . . . And one hell of a journey . . . .

Therefore, in June 2017,  for my 20th Year, I will continue to assist in relieving the suffering of others by participating in that same event now titled AIDS/LifeCycle.

AIDS/LifeCycle is a fully supported, 7-day bike event from San Francisco to Los Angeles.  It?s a life-changing bike ride [not a race] through some of California?s most beautiful countryside.

AIDS/LifeCycle is co-produced by the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center  & the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and is designed to advance their shared interest to end the AIDS pandemic.


Each year, I must raise a $3000.00 minimum to participate.

Can you help?
