I can't believe so much time has passed, but AIDS LifeCycle, the epic 545 mile, 7 day charity ride from San Fransico to Los Angeles is quickly approaching. I'm not doing the ride again this year, but the Team Midnight Ridazz which we started last year is still going strong with some familiar, and many new faces. It takes a lot of dedication to do this ride, and I hope you'll show them support by contributing what ever you can, every bit counts, and never underestimate the power of 5 bucks when enough people pitch in. The combination of higher fund raising requirement, $3,000 per rider, and a down economy, has made raising money a greater challenge for some than the physical conditioning required.
There is still time left though, and one of the most successful events we had last year, a photography show at the Bike Oven, is happening again this weekend, and it looks like they are trying to out do themselves. I'll have a few photos from last years ride in the show, but I'm anxious to see what the other artists are contributing. This really brought together a lot of folks from the bicycle community last year, and I'm sure it will attract even more people this year thanks to a special guest. In a brilliant move they got Doomies, the currently without a permanent location vegan comfort food establishment, one that many vegan food critiques raved about, to do the catering. Yes that is right, vegan comfort food, it's not that healthy, but it is damn tasty.
