Airfare and Transportation
AIDS/LifeCycle is proud to partner with United Airlines to offer discounted airfares and free bike shipping to participants flying into San Francisco Bay Area Airports (SFO, OAK, and SJC); and out of Los Angeles / SoCal area airports (LAX, SNA, BUR, and SAN), between May 26 – June 15!
- To take advantage of this offer, click here and enter code ZJBU281101 in the offer code box. This code includes the checked-baggage fees for your bike box (NOTE: if your boxed bike is over 50lbs, a standard overweight service charge will apply)
- Participants should then go through self-service check-in when they arrive at the airport, get bag tags, and check luggage (and bike box, if applicable) through the normal airport processes
- United is not liable for damages to bicycles that have been improperly packaged or boxed
- Bike luggage fee waivers are included ONLY by using the code above to book airfare. Participants who elect not to book with this code will need to bring a copy of their AIDS/LifeCycle Registration to check-in for each flight to have the bike luggage fee waiver applied to their travel.

Free shuttles will be running from Sports Basement on Bryant Street in San Francisco to Orientation Day at the Cow Palace. Shuttles will begin running at 8:00 AM. The last shuttle will depart the Cow Palace immediately following the end of Orientation Day at 5:30 PM. Simply show up at Sports Basement to catch the shuttle to Orientation Day with your bike.
Not only can you grab a shuttle, but Sports Basement will be BBQing for all AIDS/LifeCycle participants, and hosting a tutu-making party so you’re ready to ride in style. They’re also offering a discount to AIDS/LifeCycle participants to pick up any last minute necessities before you begin your journey – 20% off for members of the Basementeers program, and 11% off for non-Basementeers (so it’s a great time to sign up!)
Shuttles will be running from The Westin San Francisco Airport and Hostelling International- San Francisco – Downtown, to the Cow Palace for Ride Out. Ticket reservations will be available online through your Participant Center in April. Shuttles will pick up participants at 4:30 AM from listed locations only. Tickets are $10. You must be on site at the designated pick up location prior by 4:30 AM to board the shuttle.
