The seven-day trek from San Francisco to Los Angeles raises funds for HIV/AIDS services in the two cities.

For a quarter century, AIDS/LifeCycle, an annual weeklong bicycle ride along the California coast, has been raising funds for those living with or at risk for HIV/AIDS. This year, participants raised a record-breaking $16.6 million for the cause.

More than 2,300 cyclists and 650 volunteer roadies are participating in this year’s 25th annual ride, according to an event press release. Roadies provide water, snacks, medical support and more at rest stops every 15 to 20 miles along the route
