HIV/AIDS Bike Rides
« on: January 19, 2009, 09:21:11 PM »
Hi everyone - Happy MLK Day! I'm wondering if anyone is aware of any good HIV/AIDS-related bike rides across the country. I did the California AIDS ride in the 1990s when I lived in Reno, and it was a little slice of heaven!

In the years since, the Palotta fundraising organization that put a lot of AIDS rides together across the country has gone away. I have also tested positive in the years since that wonderful ride from SF to LA.

So is anyone aware of some cool HIV/AIDS bike rides, especially on the East Coast? Do share!

Ann - thanks for moving this from the Nutrition forum - wasn't quite sure where the best fit might be. Thanks for being a helpful guide to a newbie. ;-)

You're welcome, and welcome to the forum as well!

I don't have any info on American bike rides, I live on a Rock in the middle of the Irish Sea.

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

Thank you! And if the people there are as nice as you, I am sure it is a lovely rock indeed. :)
