What brought you to the Ride?
I’ve been giving to and volunteering with the SFAF since the 80’s. My husband was a cyclist in 2012, and he encouraged me to join in the event so we could volunteer together in our quest to end AIDS. My butt would murder me if I spend more than 30 minutes on a bicycle seat, so I signed up as a roadie.
What is one piece of advice you would give to a 1st time Roadie?
Take the time to slow down and take in the camaraderie; remember it’s not a race, and that applies to us roadies as well.
What is your favorite Ride memory?
With my roadie team in 2019, standing on the rocks the half way to LA point, and posing for our group picture, I had such a great feeling of joy and accomplishment. We had formed a friendship while giving our time and energy to such a great cause.
What is your favorite thing about being a Roadie?
My team co-captain is a friend I’ve known for 39 years. I’m so grateful we have an annual opportunity to spend a week together in the love bubble. Along with other roadies, riders and staff, we’re working together and fundraising to make this world a healthier place.
