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. You’ll be paired with a Cyclist Representative who will support your training and fundraising every pedal stroke of the way, no matter your fitness level or fundraising experience.
Roadies are the hardworking individuals who volunteer their time for the full week of AIDS/LifeCycle. Every Roadie is placed on a team, led by volunteer Roadie Captains, that determines their working group for the week. For 7 days, these folks dedicate their time, energy, and hearts to waking up very early and going to sleep late to move this event down the coast.
