AIDSLifeCycle – The Beginning

AIDSLifeCycle – Day Zero / Registration Day

With less that 24 hours before my departure to Los Angeles with the AIDSLifeCycle Event, I’m preparing to go to the Day Zero – Registration / Orientation Day to:

  1. Turn in my pledges (to meet my $3,000 pledge minimum requirement)
  2. Get my tent assignment.
  3. Watch the safety video
  4. Hang out with my fellow veteran cycling buddies & shoot the shit .. ….

After completing all the paperwork, I will return to Sports Basement (to pick up a few more items). And then, I will have dinner (carbo loading) with my best friend & anonymous sponsor, “Jason Loop.”

During the 7 day, 545 mile journey, I will be in correspondence with my guest blogger “Denali” (above). He’ll be writing / posting a daily blog report based on our phone conversations & text messages – check back and read “his take” on AIDSLifeCycle 2009.
