SoCal: World AIDS Day Ride with the Positive Pedalers

December 1 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm

15Miles, Mostly Flat
Meet Time:
8:00am
Ride-Out Time: 8:30am
Heavy Rain Cancels

Level: Beginner

December 1st is World AIDS Day, and Positive Pedalers are hosting a special training ride to commemorate this day, and all those we ride or roadie for.

We will meet at Lower Crystal Springs Picnic Area in Griffith Park at 8am, with a table set up with red ribbons for everyone to wear, and the opportunity to write a memory or note to carry with us. Please bring a framed picture of any loved ones you would like to remember and share with us.

From there, we leave on a short, simple ride to the Wall Las Memorias AIDS Monument in Lincoln Park. We will bring the framed pictures and memories and notes and gather around them in a circle at the Memorial for a short vigil and moment of silence to remember all those we have lost, and why we ride. We would love to have you share your stories and memories with the group in that circle, so we can all remember them with you and make them visible to us. After the group vigil, there will be time to explore the Monument individually and reflect, until we re-group and return to Griffith Park. We welcome all to join us for just the Vigil, so please invite any non-cycling folks to join us at the Memorial directly.

 

Training Ride Leaders: Chris Eisenberg, Mel Embree, Doreen Gonzales, Tony Zamudio, Keith Martinez
