    18th Yr. California AIDS Ride / AIDS/Lifecycle Cyclist, Tony Eason [not the New England Patriots Quarterback] reaches out to Oprah Winfrey & The Oprah Winfrey Network to assist in the Fight against AIDS in America.

    In June 2015, 2,500 cyclist will embark on a 545 mile bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles in support of the San Francisco AIDS Foundation called AIDSLifecycle.

    In route to Los Angeles, Tony and 2,500 fellow cyclist will bike within 2 miles of Oprah Winfrey’s home in Montecito, California.

    Each year, in support of the charity event, the locals of Montecito gather and create their own “Paradise Pit Stop”.
    There you can find: chocolate bars, organic strawberries, fresh ice cream, vegan treats, massages, Santa Barbara Mayor: Helene Schneider, and then some.. … ALL “GRATIS!”

    Yet, where is Oprah?

    Perhaps she's busy. But if all else fails, by all means try guilting her. That'll feel sincere.

    Good job! I have a number of friends from South Florida who fly out there for that ride each year. Way too long for me, but years ago I did the 200-mile STP (Seattle To Portland, a general charity ride that includes HIV/AIDS agencies). And for 6 years now I've been involved with the 165-mile SMART Ride from Miami to Key West, strictly for HIV/AIDS. Maybe I can get you to join us, it's 14-15 November.
