RealJock Says: Do the AIDS/LifeCycle June 3 - 9, 2007

If you've spoken with anyone who has done the AIDS/LifeCycle seven-day, 545-mile bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles to support AIDS/HIV services, you've probably heard words like "incredible" and "life-changing." This huge charity athletic event raises many millions of dollars for important organizations like the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the LA Gay and Lesbian Center.

It's also an incredible personal and physical journey and a chance to meet tons of wonderful people. This year, the AIDS/LifeCycle expects to draw well over 2,000 riders. In the words of founder Jeff Titterton, "I met more great people doing the AIDS/LifeCycle 5 than I usually meet in a year. It was one of the best weeks of my life."

Follow the AIDS/LifeCycle Training Program wants you to do the AIDS/LifeCycle 6 ride from June 3 – 9, 2007. And don't worry, if you're in even moderately decent shape, it is not too late to get started; the AIDS/LifeCycle welcomes riders of all levels and is not a competitive event. While the official training started back in the fall, has partnered with Richard Soriano, DPT, a veteran cyclist and director of Action Sports Medicine in San Francisco, to develop a 17-week training program to help get you ready for the AIDS/LifeCycle.
