We ride out of LOVE, so others can LIVE. Let’s end AIDS. Together.
On June 3-9, thousands of volunteers and cyclists of all backgrounds and fitness levels will ride 545 miles down the California Coast in the most challenging journey of their lives. Why?
- To raise awareness to end the stigma surrounding HIV/AIDS.
- To champion health and human rights in the LGBT Community.
- To bring life-saving medical and social services to people living with HIV/AIDS or at risk of infection.
- To honor those who have passed from AIDS-related causes.
- To grow our community of activists, volunteers, and ambassadors.
Proceeds directly benefit the Los Angeles LGBT Center and San Francisco AIDS Foundation in continuing their work. Read more about these two incredible beneficiaries here.

Together, we bring the LOVE to AIDS/LifeCycle.
Over the course of seven days, we’ll hear each other’s stories and lift each other up. We’ll laugh together, cry together, and find reserves of strength in each other and ourselves we didn’t know were there.
Together, we make every single participant feel accepted and celebrated.
AIDS/LifeCycle unites people of every age, sex, race, orientation, and fitness level in a common goal. No matter who you are or what brings you here, we welcome you with open arms. Your love, compassion, sweat, tears, and elbow grease make it possible for us to continue saving lives and raising awareness of HIV/AIDS.
Ways you can join us:
Our Cyclists have guts, dedication, and strength. They ride the 545 miles from SF to LA and fundraise a minimum of $3K throughout the year. Join us. No matter what your fitness level, our Training Ride Leaders are there to prepare you for the ride. You’ll also be paired with a Cyclist Representative who will support your training and fundraising goals every pedal stroke of the way.
Roadies are the all-volunteer force behind AIDS/LifeCycle. They support our Cyclists on the road from SF to LA, doing everything from hauling gear and setting up camp to acting as a cheering squad when our Cyclists need it most. Our Roadie Community brings the energy and the heart to make the whole ride happen—and they have a whole lotta fun while doing it.
Virtual Cyclists are the unseen heroes of AIDS/LifeCycle, fundraising throughout the year even though they can’t join the Ride itself. They receive all of the same fundraising tools as our Cyclists and Roadies, including a customized web page, a Participant Center to send emails and thank you notes, and a Cyclist Representative to support their goals.
