I am a rider who has spent the last couple of years away from the bike. Now that I'm riding again, I am SO much happier and I feel so much better! (I totally forgot how good it feels!)
I rode in the Boston to New York AIDS Ride 4 in 1998, and I am beginning to train for the AIDS/LifeCycle 5 in 2006. (I cannot do the ride this year, but I will be volunteering in the office.) The ride goes from San Francisco to Los Angeles over 7 days and 585 miles. Last year, they raised $5 million!
