Conquer the Golden State on Two Wheels
Experience California on an adventure like no other: from the seat of a bike!
Our route is a gorgeous, fun, and challenging course for Cyclists of all levels. With the proper training, you will conquer the Golden state.
You will cruise through 58 towns and 8 counties as you pedal south from San Francisco on your journey to Los Angeles.
Participants join us from 48 states and 14 countries, all for one amazing ride.
AIDS/LifeCycle is a fully-supported, seven-day bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles.
Fully-supported means we have your back, every step of the way. From hauling your gear between camp-sites, to providing rest stops and meals, we have you covered. All you have to do is ride.
When you register for the Ride, you'll receive a Cyclist Representative, who will assist you in training and fundraising, and can also connect you with other participants in your area.
Following the gorgeous coast of California, this is a route like no other. Not only will you see one of the most beautiful cycling courses on the West Coast, you'll also be contributing to two incredible agencies doing cutting-edge work to end the AIDS epidemic.
