AIDS/LifeCycle

June 3-9
San Francisco to Los Angeles

AIDS/LifeCycle is a fully supported, 7 day, 545-mile bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles—through some of California’s most beautiful countryside. It is co-produced by the Los Angeles LGBT Center and San Francisco AIDS Foundation and is designed to advance their shared interest to reduce new HIV infections and improve the quality of life for people living with HIV/AIDS. As part of this event, thousands of people participating as either Cyclists, Roadies, Volunteers, or Virtual Cyclists raise critically needed funds for HIV/AIDS-related services and bring to light the fact that HIV/AIDS is still a devastating disease in our society, particularly the LGBT community and communities of color.

Since 1993, when the Ride began as a for-profit event called “California AIDS Ride”, participants have raised more than $200 million and completed more than 42,000 journeys on bikes from San Francisco to Los Angeles.

By being a part of AIDS/LifeCycle, you will help us work towards the following:

  1. Fund the work of San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center to provide free HIV/AIDS medical care, testing, and prevention services.
  2. Raise awareness to end the stigma surrounding HIV/AIDS.
  3. Provide a positive, life affirming experience for people affected by HIV/AIDS.
  4. Grow our community of activists, volunteers, and ambassadors fighting to end AIDS.
  5. Honor those who have passed from AIDS-related causes.

Despite remarkable progress that has been made since the disease was first discovered in 1981, the HIV/AIDS epidemic is far from over. In the seven days it takes AIDS/LifeCycle to reach Los Angeles, more than 1,000 people in the United States will become infected with HIV.
