As a first time AIDS/Lifecycle Cyclist, Rider #6154, how did you find out about AIDS/Lifecycle?

– I know people who have ridden before.

What would you like to gain from your upcoming 575 mile, 7 day, journey to Los Angeles?

– This ride is a personal challenge for me. I have many friends affected by AIDS / HIV and others who have died. They are part of the reason I am riding, I love them so much. When some of them where sick, there was nothing could do to help them. This is a way of helping them and remembering them, and helping others. Also, it is a way for me to focus and workout my anger. AIDS has made me very angry.

What would your mother think about your upcoming endeavor?

– My mother would think that I was crazy to ride all the way from San Francisco to Los Angeles.
