This is MY YEAR. Help me be the best person I can be.
Thank you for your support in helping me to raise the necessary funds to qualify to ride in the AIDS/Lifecycle 2023 to be held in June of 2023.
If you have followed me, you know that I've dedicated each year's ride to someone else. Well, this year, I am dedicating this to myself.
I'm not trying to be selfish, but 2022/2023 is a time where I am re-inventing myself. So this is a ME year.
EDIT: So if you know me well, you know I can't be that selfish. I recently learned that this year is the 40th year of the epidemic and more than 40 million people have died from HIV/AIDS. 40 FREAKIN MILLION. I can't do this ride in just my honor - I just can't. So while this is the year of me, I will be riding in honor of every single person who has died from HIV/AIDS.
I need your help in this journey. Not only do I plan to drop some of the dad bod weight (lost 16lbs as of 02/13/2023 already, and more than 4% body fat, which is almost more important than weight loss), but I plan to ride in the most amazing of rides, down the coast of California, with up to 3000 other like-minded cyclists from all, literally, all walks of life.
The money raised helps fun support services for two well-known and long time HIV/AIDS charities. If you'd like to know more about the two charities, take a look at the "Why We Ride" page and then look at the "Beneficiaries" page. https://www.aidslifecycle.org/why-we-ride/ (this is not the donation page - look for the "donate" button on this page.)
