The 2018 AIDS/LifeCycle ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles is more than eight months away but there’s no better time to prepare for the 7-day ride than now.
The first official training rides of the season will take place on Saturday, Oct. 14 at Lake Balboa Park for people who are planning to participate in the 545-mile ride or just considering it. People of all skill levels are welcome and some demonstration bikes will be available for those who don’t have one.
“Newcomers can get started on some short routes and dip their toe in the water and get comfortable on the bike,” says Cailin Lafontaine, director of AIDS/LifeCycle’s Southern California Office. “It’s also an opportunity to meet other members of the community and start building a support system.”
