Year 3: 2017 Cycle for the Cause ride to benefit the NYC LGBT Center's programs

Hello Everyone!

I am not going to bother to rewrite this posing about my charity ride, since it still mostly applies, except for the updated links. Maybe I'll change it a little.

Since it was such a great experience for last two years, I am riding from Boston to NYC in the NYC LGBT Center's annual ride again this September.

Once again, I will be doing the whole thing on Lorelei, my 1977 flamingo Superior, so that classic Schwinns get represented. Unlike the previous year, I was not the only Schwinn. Some youngster actually did the whole thing on an early 70s Continental. So there is a possibility that I will do it on my 73 Sports Tourer (Sylvia), just to vie for the "oldest bike" badge of honor. I'll alternate training on both and see how I feel.

This charity ride raises funds for the Center's HIV programs, which includes prevention education and assistance for people living with HIV and AIDS. I (and many, many others) would be very grateful for any donations. Also, if you work for a business that makes such contributions I would also appreciate corporate contributions, so feel free to pass this information along.

I'm also happy to offer information if you would like to register as a rider or as crew.

My donation page is: http://support.cycleforthecause.org/peterpedals

The main page for the ride is: Cycle for the Cause ? The Northeast AIDS Ride

An overview of the programs supported is available at https://gaycenter.org/wellness/hiv-aids. If you are interested and have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks so much!

The ride doesn't scare me, but the fundraising part sure does!

2017's ride was about a month and a half ago. I've been meaning to write up how it went and post some pictures. In short, it raised over $1.5 million and was fantastic.

I'm registered to do it again in 2018. Let me know if you want info on registering to do it yourself in mid September. The fundraising requirement is pretty high, but that is really what it is for. It's a great ride and a fantastic experience for a very important cause.

Here are some videos of the ride:
